Up for Down


Garklein recorder or sopranissimo recorder or piccolo recorder
in combination with revrev lowering 1/24 and 1/48 frequency
among other combinations. Difficult to recorder, use as much
bass as possible, be careful w/ the subsonics. Because this is
as much an experimental setup as music per se.

How to make music from this is equivalent to using the recorder
as a catalyst to activate the extreme low frequencies. I found
that this required 'coaxing' their production in three ways:
moving the recorder in relation to the microphone; adjusting the
time intervals of note production and duration; and working with
pitch in two ways: adding vocalisms and using high and low
"swoops" to begin to catch and sustain the lowest frequencies at
the right part of the cycle. So the music in a sense is "about"
its production.

emergent meanings, somatic ghostings, where is the body in the
music, what are the parameters of the auditory spectra here?
