These nine pieces were made from March 2003 to June 2005. They were all made by recording a single instrument with a single microphone. The recordings were direct to the computer hard disk, most of them using my Powerbook G4, Protools, an M-box and an external firewire drive. The resulting mono sound files were editet to remove breathing spaces, leaving the natural decay of the tone and the attack of the subsequent iteration of the same tone. Each piece uses a few tones. A simple chord, perhaps. Additional microtonal intervals were produced in Protools using pitch shift. The pieces were assembled in multitracks, usually either 24 or 32 tracks. The environment varied from a simple appartement in Berlin (Ulrich Krieger´s) to a very large hall used for symphony orchestra performances and recordings, with a sizable audience space (Deutschland Radio, Cologne). The recordings were generally done quite closely miked.



...Until...Three Versions of „...Until...“ by Clarence Barlow
Kristi Becker (piano), Lucia Mense (flute), Seth Josel (guitar).- CD Los Angeles River Records LaL2-12
released: 2001

…until… was conceived in 1972 as a variable piece. It consists essentially of a cycle of pitches, initially highly consonant to a given drone, but gradually increasing in dissonance. At the final, most dissonant stage, a small shift in the drone reveals that the cycle has now become a phase-shifted transposition of the original. This “minimal” composition exists as an instructional text as well as (to date) nine realised versions.
