condition: (as determined by the eleventh junto project) make a field recording of a rhythmic sound. use this recording as the main rhythmic element in your track while adding any additional elements. duration should be between 2-5 minutes.
process: field recording made of the asynchronous rhythms of passing traffic from under a freeway overpass in minneapolis, mn. additional performances of acoustic guitar and violin were added in two passes (one for each instrument), recorded on to 4-track open reel tape.
for field recording, acoustic guitar, violin, spring reverb and tape loops

reworking tracks from ‘tiger flower circle sun’ by christopher willits as part of his remix project. these tracks were done in a period of a day. i used the stems provided by christopher willits and combined them with my approach to creating and layering live tape loops with additional real time acoustic guitar instrumentation with the intention of creating a new suite of works.
From a series of gatherings put on by artist jared smyth where friends get together and make music, art, video etc. This video documents an excerpt of a long-form improvisation involving myself (david andree), john keston and jared smyth on 6-26-2011.
my instruments for the session included acoustic guitar, melodica, brushes, contact mics, 2880, modified 4-track loaded with cassette tape loops, and a reel to reel with a closed tape loop. john keston was playing the roland june-106, triggering the roland mks-80 with the gms, and playing acoustic piano. jared smyth was running grainslide and cutting live loops from everyone’s signals. jared smyth did the final mixing, shot and edited the documentation video.
