about

In honor of David Tudor's 89th birthday, I recorded this tribute to his landmark 1968 electroacoustic piece "Rainforest I" using the Olegtron 4060, a small Finnish breadboard synthesizer:

Tudor's "Rainforest I" consists of complex, homemade electronic circuitry manipulated in real time to create a stunning sense of space and natural life. No field recordings or samples are used, but the impression is one of a teeming tropical rainforest:

In the spirit of Tudor's composition, I've used only the Olegtron 4060 - a small, handmade electronic device - to create this recording.
