The Sound of Recession
The sound of recession is collaborative. It is the result of music and art making that is based on sharing and working together. It focuses on shared intellectual, emotional, and body knowledge and creativity rather than ownership and ego. It is about opening up, experimenting with new ideas, listening to others, and letting go of personal fixations and old patterns. It requires disposing of self importance and experiencing the moment.
Heart-Lung Machine by Eldad Tsabary and Yifat Cohen (2009)
Heart-Lung Machine is a collaborative composition between Canadian composer Eldad Tsabary and Israeli performer/improviser Yifat Cohen, in which Tsabary processed and reorganized improvised material provided by Cohen. The specific reorganizational technique used in the piece was the creation of rhythmic strata through multi-layered gating of individual sound sources, in which each gate was configured to open at different amplitude and in response to different parts of the spectrum of another (inaudible) sound source. Auditory streaming occurs as a result of developing rhythmic patterns in each gate, individual envelope settings, spatial positioning, and sometimes signal processing. This gating setup was created in Pro Tools.
