Cycles that Surround Us, 2nd Movement

April 2, 2011 6:09 PM

Who *doesn't* love experimental music?! Demo for a piece in which the performers read the music in circles (and sub-circles).

Tracked using every instrument I could wrangle in my house - baritone horn, melodica, accordions, clarinet, Monotron, Stylophone, xylophone, steel drums, Wurlitzer electric piano. This is the "atonal, pulseless" section. So yeah, relax and let it wash over you.

It really is; right up my alley, too. Did I interpret your notes correctly that you multitracked all the parts yourself? Even if not, well done. I'm intrigued to see the score, but I'd wager it would make George Crumb feel right at home.

Thanks all for the warm welcome! I did track it all myself, using Ableton live (arrangement view). Some friends will be debuting the piece on the 15th, so I'll record it and post it here!

(I've been enjoying checking out everyone else's music too)
