Abstract

This work is a response to the art work by Susumu Koshimizu’s From Surface to Surface. The 14 miniature audio-tracks correspond to individual pieces of the art work. Just as the art work is made of wood, these audio tracks are created entirely from wooden surfaces being used to create sound. Where Koshimizu has used an industrial saw to cut and shape wood, I too have cut and shaped audio samples to create this trail. The method used is a technique that originated in Paris in the 1950’s called musique concrète (concrete music), where audio samples are shaped and edited into music. You can listen to the tracks in sequence or in any order of your choosing. Or experiment by using the shuffle feature of your audio player to create a random playback order.
