Alan Morse Davies - Fumeux Fume
Field recordings of fairground organs stretched into a vast organic landscape. This follows on from my 2007 work "Amusement Park Phases", but is calmer and more meditative, allowing more breathing space for the sound, and for the listener.
For fans of process, this piece takes a single 2 minute recording, layers it in canons 11 deep each apart by around 1 second, stretches that recording to 1 hour but preserving pitch, and overlays it against a copy of itself 55 minutes long, with left and right channels reversed.
