about

The isolating and brooding minimal nature of these compositions somehow reminded me of the feelings I felt listening to one of the first records from my childhood; Beethoven's Moonlight Sonatas by Rudolf Serkin. Soft and serene, yet dismal and melancholic at the same time.
Using an ensemble generator module for string and polyphonic instrumental effects I ventured to create these foreboding sonatas. The modulated waveforms that vibrate like a string section were then run through various effects pedals and translated via magnetic particles of analog reel to reel tape.
As the final Downscope installment of 2016 I'm happy to end the year with Field Sonatas and its final crescendo of "Waldstein," which offers a warm balance between light and dark, where dissonance is delight.

"whoowww very good stuff, like it, my wife also."
