HUDAK, JOHN - ON AND ON (CD)


"The other day, I heard a sound that sounded like music. It was a bird's song - a black-capped chickadee. The song consisted of four notes. A to G and G to F. First A to G for a while, then G to F. The next day, the bird only sang A to G. The early morning was the only time i heard the song. To create "On and on", I recorded myself strumming a guitar for a long time. I converted the strumming audio to midi information (a collection of numbers that hold the basic pitch information along with duration and volume). The computer had to simplify the strumming, and in this simplification left me with a melody... a succession of number information that i used to trigger the pitches of an instrument much like a dulcimer." (label info) Numbered edition of 300 copies, insert photograph by Cesare Fabbri.
