///
'pentaTonic miniatures for guzheng+electronics' is an ongoing music recording project. i will upload experimental / minimal tracks periodically, using the chinese traditional acoustic string instrument guzheng, an 8 track hardware live looper (looperlative LP1) and various effect pedals (i.e. line6 DL4, eventide time factor, korg kaoss pad / kaoss pad mini), eventide eclipse effects processor and various iPad apps (i.e. boulanger labs csGrain and csSpectral, gestrument).

each miniature soundscape is based on a specific pentatonic scale from the japanese / chinese / korean / indian musical traditions. i search extended and unusual playing techniques, in order to create unexpected sonic textures.

by re-arranging and re-designing the recorded live loop tracks, i explore the sound files and create re-defined songs / pieces / variations / compositions. this is an alchemical process of re-fining sound-matter.
