North Farwell

May 4th, 2006

I created this piece while taking a class about 8-channel music with Dr. Jon Welstead. I took the class out of sequence, taking it as my second technology course rather than my last. Working with 8 discrete channels was a lot of fun, but I feel that my piece could have been a bit better had I been more familiar with all of the tools involved while creating it. This piece features sounds recorded from my apartment on North Farwell Avenue. Sadly, the jet engine-like sounds come from unedited recordings of our furnace.
