False Self - experimental musical compositions that deploy generative systems and found musical materials to explore ideas of authorship and identity.
Plates - a series of miniatures for piano (or electric piano), synthesizer and voice.
The composition below is from the False Self series. The composition uses an integer table to arrange found cells of slow, jazzy piano music. Each piano has eight cells of music and one silent cell. The cells mobilize as hypnotic cyclones of repetition, that move in and out of sync, to create complexity from simplicity. As the compositions progress, the cells extinguish themselves in a languid, stuttering fashion — before the process begins anew.
