Interior Landscape CD cover

The inner and the outer

In sustained reflective modes of perception the inner is projected onto the outer, transforming the scene. What you see and hear is not what I see and hear.

I explored the visual in Interior Landscape, a tapestry completed in 1976. Now, extracting samples from many hours of field recordings made in and around Pittsburgh, I have explored the aural.

Interior Landscape is a one hour and nine second continuous work. For best results, play the entire disk without pausing. The sections of the full work listed below are not separate tracks, merely somewhat oblique suggestions of content.

The music: concert versions

These works use source material from Interior Landscape, and some use substantial blocks of sound from the full length work. However, they are not extracts. They are separate, stand alone works. They do, however, convey a sense of the sound of Interior Landscape.
