"The Music Of Poverty" Part 5-- Recently I have been sharing some of my sound works from my years as a bachelor at a South Saint Louis Apartment.
Over the weekend, I went back to those sounds, and created a new work. While older works emphasize depression, isolation, and dismal living conditions, for this new work I tried to add energy and movement,
One technique I used was to take metal banging sounds I had recorded and to use them as driving percussion elements. I also used more ambient sounds (like a grainy drone I recorded from a radio) by digitally processing them until they sounded more textured and attenuated.
"Discourse In Dust and Steel" is the old music from Brannon and Chippewa hyperdriven-- re-visited and re-purposed into something more active.
