Pipa, New York

both of these pieces interest me, moving in new directions
and after listening to Wu Man ( http://wumanpipa.org )

notes: traffic as accompaniment, traffic as interference
pipa as interference, pipa as accompaniment
finally giving traffic, city-sounds a voice, almost a holler
sound transformations: reverberation, hiss reduction, normalization

notes: almost a tune, struggling to find a tune
minor seconds separated by major seconds, minor thirds
i think of the tune as asymptotic, almost arriving
for some reason Simmel's stranger in the city comes to mind
sound transformations: reverberation, normalization

thanks to Stephen Dydo
