Music for shredders and prepared chord organs
A small test of a new work in progress, Winter 2013. Shredders and prepared chord organs controlled with dmx lighting equipment.
I started this work while in residence at Yaddo, March and April of 2012.
Sonny was a maintenance and grounds keeper at Yaddo for years and when he left he left this car.
I came across it while walking through the woods tracking the light and searching for locations. In the passenger seat among so many other things was a box of porcelain and corelle plates and cups. Sonny’s old ford might be considered an eye sore as this late 70′s working class boat reared it’s thick steel body into the pastoral and immaculate grounds of Yaddo.
Every sound you hear was captured during the event- there are no added instruments and no layering of sounds- just the sounds of Sonny’s china breaking. The only manipulation is through speed.
How it’s made:
Recorded on a Red One at 2K resolution on two separate days between 1PM and 2PM.
Audio was captured using two microphones in M / S stereo configuration passed through a tube pre amp and into a flash recorder.
