Sound Continuous (2016)

 “Sound Continuous” refers to the nature of sound itself.  On a spectrum ranging from random noise to written melody, there is typically an accepted point delineating sound as either “music” or “non-music”.  On this album, my third,  I reject that such a point actually exists, and blend noises from the world with my written music.  Street ambience, bird songs, clanking of pots and pans all find their place on Sound Continuous.

Arranged as four 15-minute suites, these collage pieces roughly represent the passage of time, both from morning to night, spring to winter, and birth to death.

All of the sounds on this record are my own, no samples were used.  The field recordings were captured walking around near where I live, in and around Chicago.

A companion album, SC Singles, consists of some of the main songs, but not all, taken out and presented on their own, for a different listening experience.  These records follow up Aubade Crowning (2014) & all albums are now streaming everywhere.
