Studio improvisations
Cassette & drama instrument

Release 26 October 2019

The recordings are stereo. From instrument to mixer to hard drive. From hard drive to tape.
Each of the tracks were made using the Drone & Drama v2 + v1.5 instruments, Companion Boxes and DIY modular synth.
The recordings are selected from a pool of multi-track recordings made over the course of one working month. Each day improvised recordings were made adding layers until satisfactory results were created. These studio improvisations of around fifteen minutes were recorded according to the following guide to how to use the instrument.
Drone to drama & back again.
Drama to drone & back again.
After capturing the recordings two of the representations were selected for release. The recordings should be played back and played along with the drama instrument.

The instrument requires a 9 volt DC power source (2.1mm tip negative). This is not supplied in the box set.

The listener / audience ‘finishes’ a composition by giving it attention. Listening is a form of composition; deciding, discriminating. The inclusion of an instrument with this recording offers the audience another type of participation. This is to make available and explicit the active role people can have when deciding to spend time on music activities. The combination of media and artefacts draw attention to the lines between digital and online culture.

Contribute to the composition. Complete the work.
