A work in progress
SPLIT is a composition across three vinyl records, each side containing a six minute edit of excerpts from found sound sources and field recordings.
This work explores ideas of what a composition could be, ritualistic elements of playing records, treating sounds as raw materials.
The records can be played in any order, at any speed, starting at any point, with or without effects or processing to create new configurations of the sounds.
The records are not labelled and there are no track listings.
The composition can only be played using the original records.
The composition is never final or complete.
Supported by the Sound And Music Composition Award 2018.
The records were custom made at Birds Hit Records, Manchester.
