Burning Keyboard


stereo electroacoustic (2012)

Duration: 7:00

Recorded on Ground of Being (Recital R7, 2014)

Program Note

Dusk incorporates the low frequency sounds generated by seafloor ‘black smoker’ hydrothermal vents, transposed bat calls, and percussionist William Winant playing a tam tam.

The vent recordings were generously made available to me by Dr. Timothy Crone of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, and were recorded in the Main Endeavor Field on the Juan de Fuca mid-ocean ridge off the coast of Washington State; the bat recordings are from the library of Avisoft Bioacoustics, Berlin.
