Eclipse 05:12


Eclipse was recorded on a 1/4" Otari tape machine, utilizing performative varispeed, physical tape manipulation, and using 80% tape splices and analog techniques. It began as a piece I composed for string quartet titled "Ascendant" that was performed by the Eclipse Quartet and recorded at Mills College in the concert hall. Sections of the stereo recording of "Ascendant" were then recorded from my computer onto tape, varying the speed of the machine while recording as well as during the transfer back to digital. Creating unique gestures that sound like they live in their own imaginary realm, paying close attention to amplitude contouring, splicing quick changes in contrast to static chordal clusters that hover and breathe. The piece is named after the quartet to pay respect to the talent of the players sampled.
