More Info

"DVD audio. Stereo and 5.1. DVD Rom with documents. 'Verb Tales' (2002). 'Les ponts de l'espace I' (2001) . 'Les ponts de l'espace II' (2003). 'А la cire perdue' (2004). 'Mining Inference' (2003). 'Terms of Occupancy' (2004, 05-06). 'The six works presented here bridge numerous, often disparate compositional and personal agendas and circumstances: the reconsideration and adaptation of the initial stereo versions (and in one case - Terms of Occupancy - an original eight-track version that turned into a stereo version) to explore the expanded spatial potential of the 5.1 format; the use of recordings of and concepts from some of my instrumental works as materials for composition in a multi-channel electroacoustic style; the compositional negotiation between recordings of natural urban environments and the substantially transformed sound materials of the digital studio environment; the temporal and geographical spanning of the place and time of origin of some of the sound materials, as well as the place and time of the original conception of these works, the place of final re-composition and mixing, and the place of final mastering a journey withstood as much or more by the works themselves as by the composer. These acts of 'bridging' have left traces and scars that resonate within and between these works.' Laurie Radford
