Thought I would share my most recent composition. Its a representation of matrixing, only the audio variety. This imaginary "music" was "heard" in the noise of a fan when there really wasn't any…Continue
" Ingo, I think you might be right and it could be decorated with a rattling noise.
Hi Graeme. Thanks for listening, I'm glad you liked it. Ever since I watched Cage's performance of Water Walk, I've been…"
"Funny what pulls you into a sound, isn't it?
