Filtered Light: Chamber Music 4 (2008)

by Steve Peters



Full version available as a CD-R or digital download from Dragon's Eye Recordings (de5017) -

Chamber Music is an ongoing series of site-specific sound works made entirely from a single recording of the empty space in which each version is presented. An hour-long recording of "silence" is made when no people are in the building. That recording is then filtered to extract drones made of the resonant room frequencies, which are used as the only materials in the piece.

Filtered Light was made as a four-channel sound installation in the studio gallery of the University of New Mexico Art Museum, for the 2008 UNM Composers Symposium.

I make music and sound using field recordings, acoustic instruments, found/natural objects, electronics, and voices. Much of this work is site-specific or place oriented. Thank you for listening.
