Sometimes a quick impulse leads me into a long fight with technology or, in this case a drudgery of edits - think that a Drudgery is a new collective noun for edits actually. This is a bit of an Alvin Lucier rip-off: played an over-simple melancholic 3x3x3, ABABACA waltzything on the piano, then I - p a i n s t a k i n g l y - re-recorded this through some glass bottles and a porcelain bowl that were on top of the piano (mini DPA 4060 mic) Then all i needed to do was line up the recordings and edit, which meant I was up much too late. I used the drawing to determine (more or less) which of the re-recorded resonances you get to hear. And just for the sake of closure had them all on at the end. You never hear the original piano recording. What I find interesting is that sometimes it sounds like a glass harmonica playing along. But it’s pretty sad. x gus
