To: Pluto

My composition “Curvature Reach” is included on the tape compilation To: Pluto that was recently released by Sediment Arts in Richmond, Virginia. Listen to the tracks here.

Below are the liner notes I wrote.

“Curvature Reach” incorporates two perspectives of space exploration, the inner monologue and the vast outer world. The inner monologue involves the explorer’s thoughts and the sound of breath or heartbeat inside a spacesuit or small enclosure. This appears as unconventional clarinet sounds and later as hard candy against teeth. The vastness of endless space as perceived from afar and in our imagination is represented by the cello which was recorded in a very large room and later slowed down. Both perspectives were then transformed and woven into an abstract narrative along with additional sounds such as disc drive motors.
