TITLE: Where Did All These Dust Bunnies Come From?
"Where Did All These Dust Bunnies Come From?"
is an experiment with negative space in audio, approaching composition
from what might be similar visually to cubism, where the perspective
is distorted. With most compositions and music, there is a linear
wall of sound without empty or silent spaces. Live DJs demonstrate
this concept clearly by blending and weaving together a continuous
audio palette. In "Where Did All These Dust Bunnies
Come From?" the composition is written so it sounds
as if it were stretched out like a slinky and slowed down to
reveal empty spaces - negative space - between the notes, but
without the effect of slow-motion morphed audio. Almost all
of the notes and instruments are sounded out in real time, with
quiet moments between them. The perspective of time and space
has been stretched and altered, like in cubism. In "Where
Did All These Dust Bunnies Come From?" there is also
no real beginning or end. The recording is designed to be looped
without a discernible start or endpoint, and lack obvious climaxes,
resolutions or thematic developments found in most compositions.
The recording was created using samples of actual instruments
and Digital Performer as the sequencer.
