Artificial Light Amy Brandon

Artificial Light is an excerpt from a 2015 cycle of compositions for guitar and fixed media entitled Scavenger, released as an album in 2016. Intended to evoke a feeling of alienation or distance from a point of origin, Artificial Light’s acousmatic component is made from digitally manipulated recordings of the composer’s previous performances. Mimicking bird calls and shrieks, the distorted sounds occasionally overpower and subsume the traced guitar lines.
