Soundendipities

Elizabeth Hoffman

Soundendipities has been performed in Gainesville, Ljubljana, New York City and Toronto…

Vibrational motions pervade the texture here and suggest an external world seen too close up for one to recognize any substances themselves. This piece attempts to convey a hyper-frenetic immobility. Physical modeling techniques were used to sculpt small sections of this piece, objects which emerge out of nowhere. As embedded gestural fragments they are intriguing residue from unknown sources entangled momentarily in the sonic mesh.
