about

"opening" is an accidental chime piece in just intonation. it is what i call a matrix, meaning that various parts of an improvisation are resampled to raise or lower the pitch and speed up or slow down the rhythms. then the different parts are arranged haphazardly to create accidental music of a sort. by doing this i can make my one octave set of chimes into a 4 octave instrument although the timbre changes a bit and one has to be careful of the low notes sounding odd. this was part of a 3 movement piece that i decided to break up and use seperately. the title comes from my penchant for shooting pictures through windows and doors. enjoy!

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...
