Sketch #2: Polytemporal Composition

"Multiplicities are defined by the outside: by the abstract line, the line of flight or deterritorialization according to which they change in nature and connect with other multiplicities."

Polytemporal composition for strings.

Cross rhythm are played between Cello / Viola and Violins with each instrument playing at a different tempo, creating an ever changing rhythmic and arhythmic movement.

Cello 90bpm
Viola 110bpm
Violin 130bpm
Violin 150bpm


Sketch #1: Improvisation (Piano & Electronics)

A minimal piano & electronics improvisation, based around one chord.

This sketch is influenced by John Cage and ideas in Zen philosophy, although rather than inviting a listener to perceive natural sounds as 'musical' in and of themselves (4'33), this piece situates environmental sounds in the frame of a tonal composition, allowing them to be experienced through the part of awareness already attuned to music.

This changes contexts through which environmental sounds are perceived.  For example, sirens can become musical textures rather than signals of crisis, heavy machinery can become a rhythmic texture instead of intrusive noise and background traffic may become a drone etc. 

This sketch was made as part of a series of ambient pieces designed to let environmental sounds through silences and spaces in the composition.  It's influenced by John Cage and ideas in Zen philosophy, although rather than inviting the listener to perceive natural sounds as 'musical' in and of themselves (4'33), situates environmental sounds in the frame of a tonal composition, allowing them to be experienced through the part of awareness already attuned to music.

The point of this is to change the context through which environmental sounds are perceived.  When listened to in a city for example, sirens become musical textures rather than signals of crisis, heavy machinery becomes rhythmic texture over intrusive noise and background traffic becomes a drone etc.  This detachment from psychological reactions associated with sounds is meant to aid in 'awareness', 'mindfulness', 'being present', or whatever you want to call it.
