Not for the faint of ear!!
Rock Trio in Harmonic Series is an extreme recomposition of the Nevadatite material put into the context of rather heavy and dissonant rock trio of guitar, bass and drums using the raw unreduced harmonic series and the idiosyncrasies of Kontakt.

Hommage Pour Paul H. Muller

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

This is an ambient music video in tribute to my Sound-in.org colleague Paul who has been experimenting with constrained aleatoric compositional techniques. This is the sound of my electric aeolian harp combined with time lapse video. The harp is a constrained aleatoric device because I tune the string but the wind plays the strings which generates harmonics of the strings.
