physical, tangible sounds with substance

We are now working on the last composition of the song cycle.  It will be a quiet mix of piano, understated vocals, spoken word and musical saw…perhaps with the addition of a repeated struck metal bowl tuned with water. The found sounds that orchestrate much of this recording are being selected for their particular timbre and presence. They are unlike any other sound with their certain rough edges. When we record found sounds the goal is not the electronic manipulation of the sound. We record them to sound like what they are: physical, tangible sounds with substance.

  1. You are so beautiful. Cool ideas for creating music. Saw your Mom the other day just walking along the street. She looked well. I had Carter and Rocky ( A friend’s dog in tow). Always makes me smile to have a reminder of you. Sending love, Kirsten xoxo
