scant_intone_winter_volute by Constantine Katsiris (radioart106) :
The programme for this half-hour broadcast consists of Winter [21m53s] and Volute [6m20s]. The first piece was recorded during a blizzard as I sat inside a warm recording studio in Stoney Creek. I watched the snow come down for hours through the big windows while I programmed the Nord Electro all day. The second piece is an electric meditation of resonating fields and buzzing wires that was recorded in my apartment at the Victory Building in Hamilton. It was among my first forays into recording static, magnetic noise, and other such sources as sound material. I hope that these pieces from 20 years ago provide a unique listening experience.
