about

Inspired by thoughts on Marshall McLuhan's concepts of "visual space" and "acoustic space." We can think in terms of a binary map of obstacles and spaces, ink on a page, a world where only one object can occupy any given coordinate location. Or we can think in terms of interpenetrating, overlapping, reflecting, refracting energy fields such a sound.

I realized that my own mental imagery when making music is often of caverns, tunnels, roads and so on and thus, strangely, more "visual" than acoustic, so I set out to change that.

"Passing Through" refers both to travel through such a mapped space and permeation through a porous medium. Perhaps they're really not so different.

Abstract, mostly improvisational electronic music with modular synthesizers, FX pedals and software.
