Electric Strings

The source material for this piece is taken from recordings of the electric bass and electric guitar, as well as vocal improvisations.

Heavily processed thumps, scrapes, pops and in places glitch-like crackles, compete with the recognisable instrumental material throughout. Vocal material implies a human agent, with fragments of harmonic material creating a sonic theme that provides a running thread throughout the piece.

Thanks to Mauricio Pauly for the electric bass and vocal performances and also to Barnaby Smith for the electric guitar.
