about

music for the Eairth dance project, commissioned by Strado compagnia danza.

credits

released November 15, 2005

composing the music for Eairth was a challenging project for me and the first one i ever did for a dance performance. despite not having much time and an already existant musical structure/idea (i joined the rehearsals of strado compania danza relatively late), i was much inspired by the dancers, and writing the music happened easily and intuitively.

again inspiration proved to be of great help when i scanned through my badly organized collection of samples and sound files to find the right ingredients for each piece. i didn’t really prepare musical outlines or write notations, but rather proceeded by feeling and i just arranged the samples, loops and my own recordings (didge, overtones, percussion) the way they seemed to fit.

i kept the global vision of the project and the given theme in my mind, went to see the progress of the dancers and their choreography from time to time and immersed myself into the spirit of the different sections/pieces.

the ingredients for Eairth music are:
my own recordings (didgeridoo, drum, percussion and overtone layers), percussion samples, syntheziser and string samples, sound effect samples, clay pots (played by daniel perret), plastic buckets, ethnic samples and loops, vfl (very low frequency) sounds from outer space, and loops/samples created by steve tibbetts and david torn.
