Singles

VT 1 and QU 1 are part of an ongoing project where an entire piece is constructed by processing, layering, and sequencing one single sound file. A short seven-second voice sample was used as the source for

VT 1, and a short sample of a quena was used for QU 1.  You can find program notes for both pieces here.
