Tonight I’ll be the guest on the Coda show on WOWD-LP, Takoma Radio. Host Matt Testa and I will be talking about The December 1952 Project, graphic scores, the upcoming Sonic Circuits Festival (have you gotten your tickets yet?) and whatever else occurs to us. Tonight, 6:00-8:00 PM on WOWD-LP, 94.3 and streaming at takomaradio.org.
I’m happy to say that Epoche, a track from my first solo release Selva Oscura, is appearing as the opening and closing music for Temps de Tesselles, a fine series of documentary films by Cie. Candide on the restoration of a Gallo-Roman mosaic in Licinius’s Villa in Clonas-sur-Vareze in France.
With thanks to Remi Salas for choosing the music.
New, and available for free download from the netlabel Pan y Rosas–Transparent Points on Four Axes.
Transparent Points on Four Axes is a layered, electroacoustic studio collaboration from double bassist Daniel Barbiero, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Ken Moore, and modular synthesist Dave Vosh. Each track began with a ground layer of a composed or improvised performance on double bass or synthesizer, in tandem with a directed, auto-generated soundscape produced by an analogue modular synthesizer. The tracks were finished with a further layering of synthesizer, electronics and percussion. The result is a richly textured music growing out of the dynamic interactions of sound shape, color and line.
Daniel Barbiero: double bass (tracks 2, 5, 6, 7 & 8); Sylosynth app (tracks 1 & 3); Microbrute synthesizer (track 4).
Ken Moore: Crackle Box (track 2); MiniMoog (track 8); Emax sampler (tracks 1, 5, 6) ; tam tams (tracks 3, 4, 7); steel pan drum (track 8); glockenspiel (track 8); bells, bowls and other percussion (all tracks).
Dave Vosh: analogue modular synthesizer (all tracks).
Recorded January & February 2018 in Silver Spring MD, Upper Marlboro MD, and Cuyahoga Falls, OH; assembled in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, February 2018, at Anvil Creations Studio.
