Artist Statement:


    This work is concerned with transformations between timbre and pitch. Five sound masses are transformed primarily by an elliptical filter. The sound masses were created by sampling a spoon hitting a pot lid. This source sound was stretched, reversed and transposed and then layered to produce the sound masses. Other Cmix processing involved room simulation and flanging to create a sensation of a slow pulsing timbre. This work perhaps reflects the Buddhist and Taoist ideas of a connection between the one, the “self” and the many manifestations in the world.
