This was a last minute set put together for Linux Sound Night, as another performer dropped out. The first set of music is all from a video game that was never made. The tunes were composed with Nitrotracker on the Nintendo DS, a nice example of free software opening up closed hardware and making it do something that was never intended. The last two pieces are granular explorations of the same Beach Boys song, one with lyrics written specifically for this performance.

Grain Sailing
 Grant Centauri » Location: Listening Room
This piece is part of an exploration of time using granular synthesis. A moment of inspiration and emotion lead to the creation of the original source, and granular techniques were used to revisit that moment and expand it, thus exploring the many facets of its texture and sonic palette. I've been fascinated with the possibilities of exploring time by changing the scale of perception. Small moments of musical or sonic material can be used as a palette for painting a new experience composed of shifting micro-sonic windows of time. There are five sections to this piece which each have different arrangements of sonic grains coming from one source. Three of them reflect closely the original source and the other two are more focused on the nature of microsounds.

The schedule is a major guideline. There is no guarantee events will take place at the announced timeslot.
