Music For Land And Water
1 of 1

“Music for Land and Water was produced in 1983 following completion of my work on the Imposed Order and The Neo-Realist (at Risk) albums. Acting as a sort of proto- lower case construct, MFLAW was composed for an ensemble of four closed-loop tape players — each player running a different duration loop — as part of a month-long gallery installation. Instrumentation was limited to a Moog and a Sequential Circuits synthesizer and a Hohner Pianet. Processing was simple: a Lexicon delay line, some spring reverbs and basic tape manipulation. Pitch and time compatible phrases and fragments were duped against a uniform click track, edited, isolated and mixed down to the four monaural closed tape loops. It was later “performed” in a presentation including works by Marc Barreca and Steve Fisk in Seattle’s Seward Park open-air amphitheater.”
