Technological Music Vol. 2 :: Entr’acte (2015)
or, Regarding, in Addition to Concerns Previously Explicated, Matters of Process, Artifice, and Verisimilitude
A series of calculated disasters wherein compositional intent is exercised to varying degrees before and/or after the moment of performance. The Irreproducible Results are single-pass, unedited improvisations featuring borrowed gear configured to maximize complexity and minimize predictability. The remainder are heavily edited constructions utilizing detritus of the aforementioned experiments, with the Pulse Matrices continuing a game of formal telephone begun on Vol. 1.
Tools include oboe, English horn, heckelphone, baritone oboe, microphones, and analogue synthesis.
Many thanks to Lance Grabmiller, Matt Ingalls, Scott Goff, Ernst Karel, Niko Wenner, and the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players.
