Studio Z Fanfare

Club/Remix, Electronic

studiozfanfareIn the summer of 2009 I was in residence with the fantastic champions of new music Zeitgeist. As part of their “composer workshop” series, me and a few other composers (Abbie Betinis and Justin Merritt) had the opportunity to work with Zeitgeist and write a new piece for them. The catch was, we had to write it in 3 days.

I ended up with 2 short pieces. One entirely acoustic, and one entirely electronic.

I spent my first session with them just recording their studio (Studio Z). They had just moved in to this cool new space, and were in the process of remodeling it. Perfect for someone like me that likes to sample all kinds of banging on things. So I wrote this little piece using only sounds gathering from knocking on the walls, floors, coffee makers, trash cans, and whatever else I could find in their new studio.
