Iron Harvest Michael Palumbo

Field recordings were taken in Toronto and Montreal, and processed in Puredata-extended using patches of my own design. The final mix was arranged and completed in Amadeus Pro. Around the time that the piece was being finalized, I was reading about the annual unearthing of unexploded ordnance and other weaponry by farmers along the former Western Front in Europe. This is known as the “Iron Harvest”, and the juxtaposition of Spring’s renewal and the reminder of the horrors of the first World War complements the way this composition plays out in my mind.
