feat. samples of K Kirchoff, toy piano
Composer: Lou Bunk
For “Cut” I wrote twelve short segments of music for toy pianist Keith Kirchoff to record for this project. These segments included numerous approaches to structured improvisation: pitches in boxes, graphic scores, proportional rhythms, etc. With these recordings as source material, I composed using Musique Concrète techniques. The process of cutting destabilizes continuity, while its prevalence creates a field of mistakes, and from this, form.
