As part of Adelaide City Council’s Soundscape program, my new installation work, Orbits is installed at the ACC’s walkthrough. It will be installed there until Monday 6th June.

A short description of the work:

Orbits is a sound work developed specifically for the Adelaide City Council walkthrough. The sonic material is drawn from two cyclical chord sequences played on a 1950’s reed organ routed to a harmonic modulator. Since the two chord sequences are of different lengths, the sequences slip out of phase with each other (a phase relation) and – in conjunction with the harmonic modulator – result in complex harmonies and textures.

You can listen to an excerpt of the work below:

More documentation to come in the near future, including some in-situ audio recordings, and at some point a formal release of the composition.
