Door Variations
two-channel recorded sound (2004)
Audio sample: MP3

PROGRAM NOTES

Door Variations originated in a “back-to-basics” compositional exercise: select a brief sample (in this case a 1.5 second sample of a slamming door), subject the sample to a single method of processing, and use the results to assemble a stereo composition of two minutes in duration. Door Variations is a collection of three of these exercises, each using a different technique of audio manipulation.
