Home for the Summer


As my first composition combining my acoustic music with my electroacoustic work, I integrated the natural sounds of water and birds with an excerpt from the last movement of my composition, Perceptions, entitled time. The rich sounds of the stream are merged with the underlying rhythmic ostinato of woodpeckers, a a dominating early morning sound in the first part of summer. . . All sounds of the natural world are from field recordings of rural New Hampshire.
