about

This series of work explores the threshold between dissonant tone and harmonic structure. With each piece this liminal point is drawn out over time (x-axis). The various sound layers can be described in the vertical plane (y-axis). The resultant sound images can be drawn in the mind's eye whilst listening to the pieces

Each track was created on one modular synthesiser system*. Two additional techniques were used during the recording process: sound on sound multi-tracking and digital delay** (with no feedback) of the left hand channel to provide a stereo image

* The various modular systems were (in alphabetical order***):
ARP 2500
Buchla 100
EMS VCS3
Moog 3C
Paia 4700
Roland 100M
Serge Modular

** The digital delay unit used was a Bel BD-80S, set to a delay time of approximately 400ms

*** This is not the order in which the tracks appear
