september_christiane


September – a collaboration of Christiane Offenbar, Meolog, and myself. All of the audio is derived from Christiane’s singing of Meolog’s poem which is below. The processing created tracks that were based on harmonic series started on 27.5 cents, 41.25 cents, and parallel tracks in a fugue at the octave, minor 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

warmen tage:
sommers versprechen

noch einmal auf
und lichtet sich
mit den bäumen

Red Sands Maunsell Forts

Redsandsforts

Red Sands Maunsell Forts is quasi-ambient piece constructed from loops taken from a 17 edo guitar improvisation and the subsequent loops processed and live sequenced using Sonar’s matrix view (the graphic below). While it doesn’t have the flexibility of Albelton Live, I find the the constructs to be interesting despite being laborious to set up.
