FL (2013)

Released on: Electronic Masters Vol. 3 (ABLAZE Records)

This electroacoustic piece was inspired by my experiences living in the state of Florida during my high school and early college years, witnessing how greed, opulence, extravagance, and above all, human beings’ need to warp, pervert, and destroy for the sake of our own amusement has ravaged the ecology of a once beautiful place on Earth. I have fashioned this piece in a kind of rotational form, with each successive cycle bringing with it further distortion and decay to the original musical material. With each successive rotation the continually weakening voice of nature is drowned out by the sounds of industry and the “fun” found in theme parks and at eroded, overdeveloped beaches.
