What does the Sound Kit look like on USB stick?
There are two tracks which feature on CD, see below:
Why 'Thema (Omaggio a Joyce)'? Originally composed by Luciano Berio.
Between the years of 1958 – 1959 Luciano Berio composed an electroacoustic composition known as ‘Thema (Omaggio a Joyce)’. The Composition is based on the poem “Sirens” from chapter 11 of the landmark novel Ulysses by Irish Writer James Joyce.
This was an important electroacoustic composition. Composed roughly 70 years ago, this Composition was ahead of it’s time.
‘Thema (Omaggio a Joyce)’ blurs the borders of language & sound, poetry & music & speech & noise.
I recorded a series of drills which is the catalyst that drives the rhythm of this composition. I play & add bass, drones, electric guitar, Synthesizer & Alto Saxophone to give it’s final unique metallic sound.
The industrial sounds you hear throughout this composition feature on the CD & USB stick in AIF, MP3 and WAV format and are available for your own use. The musical style of this piece belongs to the Industrial / Electronic genre.
