about

My first album of compositions. All pieces are early forms of noise fields and meant to be listened to as one continuous (gapless) mix. This approach continues to develop into vol. 2, and the soon to be released vol. 3. The narrative impulse diminishes as a form of simultaneous 'field music' evolves into being, while entertaining a free-form approach that still allows the results to sound musical. These are the segments out of which I construct DJ 'art sets' with which people who attend events have an opportunity to interact with. This did not happen so much with this album but starts more with v2 - see HARPPP 2-2-1. So this is the more musical approach to constructing noise fields that depends on real-time interaction - jamming and composing. For a different approach see the recently released 'Water' or 'Shape Changer's Stairway' (amongst others).

Many of the pieces consist of distinct sections - that is the song level of divisions. As a whole album, all of the pieces are meant to not have gaps between them - that is the second, overall level of divisions - it is like one large noise field.


"Normally people have a very particular musical taste and will refuse to listen to anything that does not fit this taste."


Noise fields are a study in specific effects of specific sound environments - audio with a function. Audio as an instrument of research rather than a form of entertainment or artistic work. Using art as the medium to conduct research. See 'Water' for a full step forward in this direction.

"The Muzak Corporation itself, through its Human Engineering Laboratories, has done enough research to prove that it not only affects people but it affects them in very specific ways."
