Album Notes
Vibration becomes sound when someone listens.
When listening, we consciously and unconsciously organize sound seeking identification and meaning.
For reasons more often psychological than physical, some sounds are lauded as pleasurable while others are ghettoized as noise.
The majority of sound is overlooked or ignored.
If sound is vibration interpreted then what is music?
Music is organized sound.
There are many ways to organize sound, the most organic being listening.
To listen is to compose music.
Whether we acknowledge it or not, we all participate in a universal orchestra, performing an eternal symphony, as nuanced and elaborate as life itself.
Silence does equal death.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Tucson Pima Arts Council, roughly 300 field recordings of the Tucson soundscape were made from 7/1/13 through 1/1/14 in three central Tucson locations: the downtown area, the University of Arizona campus and Reid Park.
Approximately 100 of these recordings were arranged into a musical score and organized via multi-tracking before being released as The Sonorous Desert City Project ---- a three part suite celebrating and chronicling the Tucson soundscape.
