The Redactions (2015-) constitute an ongoing exploration of ideas surrounding the extraction of "peaks," or "transients" from geographically & thematically relevant audio materials given a particular realization or performance. The outcome can take any stylistic form from classic Musique Concrète to poly-rhythmic chaos to solemn minimalism-inspired canons.
After years of performing computer music & with variable hardware analogue / digital modular synthesizer systems, I've decided to again explore the merging of the two via the Expert Sleepers modules connecting Max-MSP & a Hybrid Digital / Analogue Eurorack Modular Synthesizer via Optical ADAT connection.
Hinging on the topographies of the"Occlusions" & "Generators" systems, it's the most complete performance solution I've come up with to date; very much a live performance work & as of yet remains undocumented by a tangible commercial recording. It's generally performed in Quad, although stereo & Octophonic performances have been given; please come hear it live.
