Music Composers Unite!
I have a couple of bits here for you all to have a listen to. The majority of my work is written down but little is recorded, with the exception of pieces created on sibelius, but I hate midi sibelius sounds, and music for film, scored on logic but the files are too large for upload to here. I like to blur the lines of composer, performer and listener but these are the closest I have to something I have written and recorded.
Distorted Village is essentially musique concrete, written in 2011. With the exception of the aeolian flute sounds, everything is sounds made by manipulating household items, a banana hitting a frying pan, scraping whisks, you know...
The concept is that of a man coming into a village on his motorbike, crashing then looking round for help but finding no-one. All the while, he is being watched by something
E K is nearly 14 years old now... that is scary! I recorded it using a 16 channel analogue set-up of ADAT machine, patch bays etc. Not a computer in sight! All instruments were played and recorded by myself in one take each. Everything is improvised and had not written direction. The only set material was a wild recording i made on the off chance i the middle of York near a fountain where some children were mocking a guy who was telling everyone that we were all going to hell! That was recorded using a lapel mic and a mini disc player. It is possibly a little rough around the edges, but I still enjoy it after all this time.
Hope you enjoy, feel free to feed back
