Andromeda Bells

Year composed: 2008

Instrumentation: Fixed media (“Tape”)

Duration (approx.): 3′


This is a student work composed for an electronic music class at Portland State University. I primarily used a program called Hyperubic which converted images to sounds given specific parameters. I this work, I utilized various images of the Andromeda Galaxy to generate the primary samples which were then manipulated and developed using a software called Goldwave. Other samples were generated by recording improvisations by my fellow students.
