Sonologyst "deaf at sea" music is natural like a river flowing calmly, the sea waves in the Autumn days, the birds flying in the eternal sky. It's like the human being is a distant presence and the landscape the main character of the picture. Beautiful Favorite track: is that which will be.

about

.................................................................................................

These two pieces are the result of a collaboration, of sorts, between a handheld reel to reel cassette recorder and myself. While the instrumentation includes cello, guitar, trombone, and found sounds, I think of these instruments only as tone/timbre generators; the sounds from which may or may not betray their original source. As I undertake the iterative recording process--recording sounds onto degraded magnetic tape, transferring the analog recording to digital, manipulating the composition in Ableton, and then recording back to degraded tape--both intentional and incidental artifacts reveal themselves. Each progressive copy of the recording documents the decay of the composition over time, offering up new sonic elements for me to respond in kind. It’s this destructive/constructive interplay that is at the root of these new sounds.
