about

The music included in this cycle originated from a collection of sounds from different locations (the city, my studio, the woods, etc.), which became the prime materials of my studies at Mills College. As I listened to these sounds, I became interested in the way in which their harmony, rhythm, density, dynamics and timbre relate to each other and how they evolve in time. In the process of translation from field recording to instrumental music there is a transformation that occurs due to notation, acoustics, and esthetics. My objective is to emphasize the musicality of these sounds, establishing a direct connection to their original form, imagining their transformation as transmigration (in sanscrit, Jatyantara-parinamah). This idea suggests that the characteristic traits of a sound are detached from their source and born into a new form (the composition, the musician and the instrument), adding to it a new layer of existence and at the same time keeping the essence of its previous source. This is true for the entirety of this album.
