"Marcus Schmickler's new release following his acclaimed 'Altars of Science' is a must have for those interested in the rising field of contemporary Computer Music. It reconfirms Schmickler's interest in the liaison of sound, phenomenology and cognitive sciences. Schmickler therefore utilizes a new interpretation of 1960's discovery, the Shepardtone, discovered by Roger Shepard, which creates the auditory illusion of a tone that continually rises or descends in pitch yet ultimately seems to get no higher or lower. The phenomenon first got imposed to the music world by James Tenney in his piece "For Ann Rising". Similarly, Schmickler has a musical take on the subject by creating Arpeggios, short sequences of tones creating an akin effect. The idea for the material was originally conceived for a collaborative Installation-piece together with artscollective Interpallazo." (label info)
