Transit: A figure is as a figure of

A quadraphonic piece that is comprised of a specific composition using organic recordings arranged according to a graphic spectral score. The premise of the piece is traversion, through an arrangement of textures and tones. It has fixed points of duration and movements with an intention of spatialization through passing fragments that travel speaker to speaker whilst incorporating low frequencies via two subwoofers. The high tones travel in patterns, and the lower end of spectrum rests in a certain stasis to generate a sense of physical resonance - thereby bringing emphasis to a middle range that is absent to a degree in frequency but experienced as a sort of phantom intensity. The aesthetic to meant to convey a horizontal journey that evolves within the piece with crescendos that punctuate, the sonic image is of the sacred vessel that contains the arcane universe but can only be seen from one perspective at a time. For this I incorporate the formal decision of one light source, the natural pure light of one window.

2 prepared reel to reels (2 Nagras, 1 Teac), two frequency generators, 4 directional speakers, 2 subwoofers, and graphic intuitive score
