Beau's work as a producer inspires me a great deal, but I'm even more thrilled by his own music. This new collection is especially lovely and challenging, showcasing both his skills as an engineer and as a musician. More please.
Nine processed piano pieces spanning nine years. Recorded using 2, 4, 8, 16 and 24 track tape recorders and cassette.
Processed using analog techniques (overdubbing, sound-on-sound, inversion, retrograde, retrograde inversion, varispeed, saturation, splicing, tape destruction), sampling, and digital techniques (buffer manipulation, sample rate modulation).
