Ever Decreasing Circles

This “sound text” miniature was included in the annual Miso Music Portugal Sound Garden project.
The materials were derived from bare ambisonic recordings I made of a multi-channel outdoor installation created by Jason Bolte – while we were both attending an Atlantic Centre for the Arts residency in Florida a number of years back. It features voices of the writers who were attending ACA during the same period. The B-Format files were edited and decoded to stereo for normal purposes (transformational processes were applied after decoding). The concerns of this work are with texture, rather than intelligibility; however as the content develops, the words begin to gather meaning.
