Movement of Time Kelly Nairn

Spoken Text: John Festego

A combination of percussion and spoken text. The percussive element was derived from sound object recordings and attempts to avoid a typical “looped” sound (e.g. — as seen in “beats” heard in Rap music which often consist of no more than a 2 bar drum-loop). As for the spoken text, a short passage has been used throughout the piece and is presented in a variety of transformed states (using procedures such as granulation and pitch shifting). The theme of “time” is expressed in the text content as well as in the manipulaitons performed upon both it and the sound objects used to develop the rhythmic accompanyment.
