Release Matthew Schoen

The idea which sparked the composition this piece was to create a relationship between large, expansive soundscapes, and closer, more intimate musical events. From a massive wave of energy emerges smaller behaviours, only noticeable once the initial activity has dissipated. This wave also brings forth new sonic landscapes and smaller spaces where sound evolves. Most of my compositional material was recorded in a forest in the Laurentians. Therefore, without literally referencing them, the sounds used share the characteristics of an outdoor, natural world.
