A Thousand Tones
. . for electronics

'A thousand tones' is a tape piece played by noise and recorded by me.

When I think about Cage, I think about failure and nature, and this relates to me and my ideas about organized sound and composed sound and instruments. What we hear in this piece is that approach but on a much lower level, which is where the machine expresses itself in a density of numbers. The music is noise used to trigger the elements of sound given only a few rules and conditions and letting it draw out changing patterns and rhythms that seem static but are in fact a dynamic system . . . something I visualize as a bored taping while waiting for the bus or the seemingly odd way branches divide out as they grow.

A thousand tones was commissioned by Juraj Kojs.
