RECORDINGS OF FAILING LIGHT
Recordings of Failing Light explores the subatomic matter of ordinary instrument sounds. Pianos, glass percussion, guitars, and feedback were atomized through sampling and granular processing in search of the audio equivalent of a negative image. In the end, these granular elements became the beds and pads for elaborate extrapolations of deconstructed melodic, rhythmic, patterned, and forward-looking sound -- and with the addition of analog sequencer and arpeggiator based textures, some tracks reach back to Marc’s days with Young Scientist.
Perhaps as an acknowledgment of the aesthetic guiding Jon Hassell’s Seeing Through Sound, Marc Barreca’s work on Recordings of Failing Light finds its origin in images. The gradations and modulation of light and dark in radiographs, rayograms, negatives, old black and white and sepia tone photos all impart and inform a shaping influence to the waveforms and amplitudes of sound found in these 20 pieces.
Heavily layered, simultaneously dense and expansive, Recordings of Failing Light is the result of experiments conducted in a sonic version of the Hadron Collider.
CD includes 13 new pieces with a download card for 7 bonus tracks.
