Here’s another segment from the live recording I wrote about in the last entry. This is an excerpt from the piece Some Kind of Adhesive from One Day to Save All Life (2008, Unearthed Music). If you are familiar with the piece you will probably notice that this excerpt bares little resemblance to the original recording.
This is an example of how far a piece can stray from it’s original structure. The tempo hasn’t changed and some of the same instrument recordings are used, but these elements have been shaped into something new by cutting, stretching, looping, processing, and other forms of manipulation in real-time during the performance. This makes every set different from the next and keeps things interesting for us and (hopefully) our listeners.
