Meniscus 1 John Arthur Grant

As liquid distorts and clings to the side of a glass, so frequencies morph and blend in seemingly unnatural ways, ever watchful of their origin. This work began with simple fragments of modelled electric piano, performed with my own alternate tuning. The audio was then processed many times. The aim was to extract new resonances, while promoting an organic growth of timbres, still related to the original, but often curved in unexpected directions.
