about

________________________________________________

This piece is a hybrid improvisation / documentary recording of a malfunctioning CD player during the very final fourteen minutes of its malfunctioning. Once this recording was completed, it ceased operating on any level, whatsoever.

The recording features a four channel live-mix comprised of the 2 audio outs from the CD player, a contact mic taped just above where the CD spins on the player, and an induction coil held in my hand.

During this recording, I discovered that there was some effect on the spasming of the CD player caused by the position of my hands near the machine; once I discovered this, my hand motions were more dynamic and eccentric, and the output seemed more "expressive", or perhaps at least "interactive".
