Absence  for Two Orchestras
Date: 2003,  Duration: 6m

Date: 2003

Duration: 6:06 minutes


This recording began with collecting orchestral samples of various chords, single notes and arpeggios. These were then imported into Protools, edited, modified and remixed to form more complex textures exploring spatialisation and textural density.



The notated score of Absence uses orchestral samples from Note Performer within the Finale notation program. The score is a transcription, and further orchestration, of the original remixed recording of the samples. Due to the vast number of audio material created as a result of the remix, the orchestration required the need for two orchestras in order to capture the various nuances and effects of the original remixed recording.
