Ambient Assembly Marcus Gordon [magfoto]

Ambient Assembly is a live-coded composition that embraces a tranquil opening with blips of sharp electronic sounds over an oceanside soundscape. The “ambient” is reflected by the live coding sequences that fluctuate the blips in a repetitive but slightly random manner. The movement of the work transitions from tranquility to a deep suspenseful mode imbued with increasing layers of slow and very slow bass lines, creating a fabric for in the incoming transition to a slow breakbeat. At this juncture, various assemblages begin to form through a cloud of wobbly bass lines rising and falling. An increase in tempo, adding of the percussion sounds top off the energy this piece and slowly subside with stuttered effects entering in quickly and all fading out slowly, while the tempo decreases at an even slower pace. This live coding performance was recorded in studio.
