Sonic adventures in the land of textural distortions, microtonal manipulations, meandering sound walls, and other ear curiosities introduced by Sam Hertz, composer and sound artist and artist and curator in residence!
Douglas-Moore lays out sound walls using guitar-created sine tones, feedback, and a deliberate approach to sonic layering while Roth inlays his electronics influenced approach to the alto saxophone, ducking in and out of the sound space with microtonal manipulations, multiphonics, drones, and other noise gestures, sometimes to reinforce the overall texture, other times to destroy it. the result is a continuous sound field that seems to evolve slowly but at the same time constantly reworks itself through subtle turns, hints, and premonitions from two sound artists keen on manipulating sonic space.
