Single Origin (2010)4:17Nic McConaghyCache 2010, 2, 6 | JTTP 2010
Single Origin is an acousmatic miniature created entirely from the sounds of coffee beans. As a coffee enthusiast, I am often fascinated by the process of transformation that the humble coffee bean must undergo before it is enjoyed the world over as a delicious beverage. Through a variety of transformation techniques this miniature seeks to explore the very essence of the coffee bean in its different forms. From granular and liquid, water-type textures through to lively gestural material inspired by the energy that caffeine provides.
As a composer I have enjoyed subjecting the beans to an entirely different form of decoction.
