Abstract or description

Papa November (2011) 5’36 (Fixed media - 2 channels) by Ben Ramsay

Papa November is the fourth piece from an EP entitled 'Circles of Latitude' which was composed as part of an ongoing exploration of the compositional links between intelligent dance music and acousmatic (sound that one hears without seeing the source as in musique concrète) music practices. The piece is composed roughly around a metric grid and is based on more synthesised electronic sources rather than recorded and processed ones. The pieces aims to further explore Emmerson’s language grid in an attempt to extend my own compositional practice. Unlike other compositions in my PhD portfolio the piece moves away from causality to compositional associations based on a metric grid. The piece also explores some commonality in my acousmatic practice, namely the use of granular synthesis, spectral processing and convolution.
