Track Info

Artists Statement:"I am a pianist/composer/sound collage artist whose work falls between the cracks of several different genres, though I manage to find an audience with the "dark-ambient" and "experimental" crowds. My approach is to combine original piano music with found-sound samples, which I process electronically to simulate subconcious states. I'm particularly interested in the effects of recontextualized speech samples and how they interact with each other to create new meanings.  I also try to exploit the musical qualities of speech and aim to put the spoken voice on equal footing with musical (and other) sounds.  The resulting work invariably suggests a narrative, though I try not to impose a particular story upon the the listener, preferring instead the individual and subjective interpretations of imaginative minds.  "Mistress of Ceremonies" is an excerpt from an upcoming audio release- my fifth collection of pieces- entitled "Ritual Research", scheduled for early 2009."Contact:http://www.joefrawleymusic.info
