about

Soundcasting is an ongoing series of experiments using fishing string and natural forces to create sound. Nylon string has wonderful sound properties capable of creating long, sustained sounds, staccato sounds, and wonderful reverberation. The purpose of these experiments - as with much of my current work - is to set something up or in motion then get out of the way. These recordings were only edited for length and volume. No effects or processing was used. Many of these sounds are inaudible to the naked ear without using some sort of resonator. Contact mics make it possible to hear into a strange world beyond our faculties.

about

Rick Tarquinio New Jersey

My music is created very simply using improvisation, chance procedures or accidental means. I also do a lot of field recording and sound experiments using natural forces to create sound. I used to be a singer/songwriter in a past life, but every caterpillar has its day...
