Express/Vent

After working a lot with non-pitch related material I was interested in delving further into notes and timbre. I recorded lots of myself and discovered I had a large amount of interesting vocal material from slurping and flutter-tounging to vocal improvisations, so decided to create a work exploring these sounds. The piece is structured through interludes of breath, which serve as bridging components to the next outpouring of vocal sounds. This overall shape leads to a climax at the end of the piece where I layered many effects I had developed earlier in the piece to create a frenetic, rhythmical conclusion which finally vents the build up of the piece.
