A work which was developed over 2014-15 and recorded in April 2015 has now been released on Bandcamp as part of the Maurilia Sound Studio series. The work was composed using Max/MSP, a vocoder and a couple of effects modules.
The fourth volume of the Maurilia Sound Studio series is now available. “Goyder’s Line” – recorded in April 2015 – is a composition for Max/MSP, vocoder and effects modules. For its structure and form, the work references the geographical boundary (or isopleth) pioneered by George Goyder in the mid-1880’s to denote and determine patterns of rainfall in South Australia. The work’s sonic character (derived from sawtooth waves and the feedback of a Moog MF-108M module) results in a continuous drone; consisting of rich, wavering harmonic tones and textures which are intended to be evocative of the colours, climate, topography and relative stillness of the landscapes that Goyder’s Line passes through.
