A collection of music about listening—sonic exploration in the past, present, and future. Specifically inspired by the earliest electronic music and the most recent.
Techniques I explore include an overuse of Pro Tools' default plugins, such as the oft loathed D-Verb, because the cheap, default sounds are often the most resonant and compelling; explorations of sine waves made on Max/MSP, a meditation on the potency of electronics' early integration into music, in light of the age of the plugin; instrumental improvisations post facto edited into discreet song sections; algorithmic/random/chance electronic systems; intense left/right separations, sudden volume shifts because this is music primarily exploring headphonic sound.
