This release is the result of an intense period of study, experimentation and creativity (2009-2010). All works were produced while studying a Masters Degree in Music Technology at the Digital Media and Arts Research Centre at the University of Limerick, Ireland.
These pieces reflect my interest in having a meaningful interaction with technology in performance. Source material for the most part is field recordings that fall into 2 categories; urban and rural. These opposite sound worlds are probed and manipulated to explore a possible dialog or meeting point, and to also subvert their context. Similar to the discussion about “what is noise”, the beauty of this output is open to opinion and this material is part of that discussion.
I wish to thank Dr. Robert Sazdov, Dr. Kerry Hagen, and Jurgen Simpson for their time, expertise, and encouragement, the experience was transformational.
