Album Notes
The Sound of Things is an abstract exploration of life in the early 21st century.

Composer/saxophonist Kevin Pike explores themes of technology, nature and the human experience by combining traditional instruments with sounds from the natural world.

The first 12 tracks on the album are each about a different aspect of 21st-century life.
The album finishes with a symphonic recomposition of these 12 tracks into 4 movements.

1. 21st Century Ambition

2. Crowdsource Waltz
“general consensus” in the internet age
3. The Cat’s Meow
the growing influence of cats
4. Lullabyed
family themes passed from one generation to the next
5. Click
the things we click and the content we choose to consume
6. Transformation Nocturne for Industrial Shrinkwrap Machine
automation and what it means to perform the same task over and over
7. The Ol’ Ballgame
handheld electronic games vs. the real thing
8. Tok Tic

different views of experience
