desired climate works

a series of electronic process pieces concerned with stasis, phase relationships, and the subjective psychological interpretation of musical form. developed between 2005 and 2010, most of the early pieces were structured by taking one source of live open-circuit feedback, recording this feedback into 2 or 3 loops of different lengths and letting the live feedback and loops interact with the room, the listener, and time. the time frame was always open and vertical, limited in releases by media, but the works themselves could last indefinitely. the aggregate effect of this total sound as both an acoustic and psychoacoustic phenomena was the driving force for continued exploration. some later works were composed in Pure Data and the last pieces were primarily composed in Supercollider using synthesized sound and recordings of acoustic instruments and events. thanks to m. shiflet at gameboy records, d. rothbaum at emr, z. reno at onamato, olde english spelling bee, and d. kirby at homophoni for supporting this music through their record labels. the most detailed document was a 3 cdr release on gameboy records in 2008, other releases are linked to or noted below.
