[Composition 2014]

Composition 2014.01 (Untitled)

Composition 2014.01 (Untitled) consists of multiple ‘sound lines’ that slowly fade in and out of each other - with glacial movement - across the stereo field. Two of these elements consist of  Shepard Tones - which give the illusion of the sounds infinitely rising in pitch.  

Composition 2014.01 (Untitled) was first presented at Corpora Aliena - IKLECTIK [off-site] - 07.04.2021

Composition 2014.02 (Untitled)

Composition 2014.02 (Untitled) was produced digitally using FM and analog modelling synthesis. The components of the composition consist two elements -  one short  sound - and a longer pulsing sound - with both sounds fading in and out of each other. 

Composition 2014.03 (Untitled)

Composition 2014.03 (Untitled) is multi-textured - and oscillates from moments of density to those which are more sparse. Distortion has been applied to create a level of timbral complexity.

Composition 2014.04 (The Question Concerning Technology)

Composition 2014.04 (The Question Concerning Technology) is in the form of a palindrome - and consists of a continuously repeating tone pitched at C4 - that alternates between three fading sounds.
The Question Concerning Technology is an essay by the philosopher Martin Heidegger. The question is asked  “so as to prepare a free relationship to technology’ - and that the existential relationship with technology is one that is free and unbounded. Heidegger explores the wider meaning of technology - not just how it is perceived today - for example with new digital technologies and  media - but in the broadener sense of ‘tekne’.

Composition 2014.05 (Untitled)

Composition 2014.05 (Untitled) is sparsely textured - and consists of two layers; a short continuously repeating sound pitched at C2; and number of short fading sounds. All of the elements are separated by periods of silence - and ring-modulation has been applied to create a level of harmonic complexity.
