Would that the sound of the bell might go beyond our earth,
And be heard even by all in the darkness outside the Cakravala;
Would that, their organ of hearing become pure, beings might attain perfect infusion of the senses,
So that every one of them might come finally to the realization of supreme enlightenment.
-bell gatha enchanted after reading the Samantamukha-Parivarta
The 2010-2011 version of Resonances for metallic percussion and live electronics was recorded by percussionist Nathan Davis at the University of California in January 2011. The recording was engineered by Martin Hiendl. I mixed, edited, and mastered the recording from January to April 2011. The first versions of the piece, composed from 2005 to 2007, were performed by the Brazilian percussionist Fernando Rocha. This would piece would not be possible without the invaluable help from Fernando Rocha and Nathan Davis.
