listen to! amplitude reversals, bodies foregrounding musicworks http://www.alansondheim.org/claar.jpg http://www.alansondheim.org/claar1.mp3 clarinet http://www.alansondheim.org/claar2.mp3 clarinet http://www.alansondheim.org/toomb1.mp3 viola http://www.alansondheim.org/toomb2.mp3 shakuhachi inverting amplitudes foregrounds body and operational instrument sounds; these are the last of the pieces which treat bodywork as fundamental to music, the body presencing; the usual focus of an instrument, proper sounds, almost a shell or manifold across flesh and breath. i haven't made work like this before, interior and exterior exchanged in an incredible sonic mapping tending towards possibilities (at least for me) of new modes of sound and musical philosophy.! i'm including viola and shakuhachi urls from yesterday, similar setups, hoping you'll listen.
