Darkness Falls Nathan Marsh

Darkness Falls is a stereo electroacoustic piece that was created using personally recorded samples from only two sound sources: a piece of paper, and human breath. The piece strikes a balance between sonically manipulated abstract sound and distinctly human-made sound, the latter of which serves to entrench the listener in a particular fantasy world. The humanity of the breathing sounds force the listener to infer meaning from the otherwise abstract sample sounds which serve as the backbone of the piece.
