Circa is a composition that merges the vibrant acoustics of the pipe organ with the techniques of electronic and post-digital music. Through computer control of the organ’s pipes and stops, methods to dissociate the timbres of the organ from its keyboard interface are used to conjure extremes of minimal and maximal textures insides the organ’s harmonic design. Cloud-like masses shift and churn through the instrument in an exploration of anomalous sonic terrains. Digital processes further shaped the work through timbral processing.
