Am pleased to announce my 38th Bandcamp release, Chamber Bits.
[Note: embedded players -- which I basically hate -- are replaced with links when they move off the blog front page]
No modular synthesizers were used in the making of this release.
Instead I dug in the virtual crates (my hard drive) for sound sources. Not just samples but software instruments and midi patterns, wherever they might be lurking in the canyons of files and folders. This release might have once been called "eclectic" but I've decided to be more aggressively PoMo. If something's not supposed to go together, it went together. At the same time, formally speaking, the tunes push further backward into the 20th Century chamber music realm. It's not atonal (pretty much the opposite) but more like the music recovering serialists make. These could all be midi sketches awaiting live players but we know that's never going to happen. Computer acoustics remain the vocabulary.
Released May 3, 2021
If you'd like to support this blog (now in its 20th, ad-free year) buying the occasional Bandcamp song or LP is a great way to do that.
