dot organic David Bergeron [David]

dot organic was composed using a collaborative improvisation titled Tonal Recall as raw material. Dr. Nicholas Papador and I performed Tonal Recall for Noiseborder’s Infuse 24: Recall and Flourish. The fundamental idea of the improvisation was to have nothing prepared in advance with Ableton Live, starting with a blank set. As Nick began improvising, I recorded his marimba playing in real time and used what I captured as my source material, creating an organic sonic connection between us and a sound unique to the performance. Tonal Recall yielded moments with musical potential that inspired me to look beyond the live improvisation. Exploring this potential though layering and processing selected moments of the recorded improvisation led to dot organic. I view dot organic as a separate piece from Tonal Recall despite their sonic connection; Tonal Recall is both its own piece and the source material for dot organic.
