Instead of Anything, Anything
for stereo sound // duration: 8'20"
All source material for this piece was derived arbitrarily from sound sample libraries, then processed and juxtaposed to emphasize particular timbral relations and contrasts among the originally concrete and generic samples. Hopefully, what is ultimately interesting, are our schematic associations of sound and the constructed relevance of such clichés as children, birds, and clocks. This piece sounds like it could be programmatic, or at least "about something" extra-musical. Perhaps it conjures vivid images in tune with the more representational acousmatic components. But all figurative inference is a byproduct of the sounds merely attempting to escape their arbitrary and generic roots.
