Music Development

In an email exchange i shared with Brad Wentworth 3 elements of the work:

 

1. There should be dissonance of sounds that do not usually coexist. 

2. The  whole work should be 35-40 minutes. 

3. Three Quarters of the way through the piece, there will be one section of unison. That section should be a different sonic world. 

Round 1: Ideas 

Bugs

00:00 / 13:01

Twang

00:00 / 04:01

Round 2: Ideas Expanded and then sent to second musician Rob Jost for improvisation on bass, horn and/or guitar. 

Bugs

00:00 / 13:15

Cannon

00:00 / 08:36

Twang

00:00 / 05:27

Brad knew we wanted Rob, to also have a moment of isolation, highlighting his interpretation of being in-between and inside worlds without any sonic elements to respond to.  The section solo grew out Rob's improvisation, his building of a world.
