about

Quartet Forensics
Destruction/Reassembly Research of String Quartet I & Anima Exstasis

The sixty-six tracks on ‘Quartet Forensics’ are micro-studies based on sampled material from ‘Mapping the Rivers' Unconscious’ (2014) and ‘Anima Exstasis’ (2015), both compositions for string quartet [unreleased as of the date of this publishing]. Each individual track or grouping of tracks is either investigative of an inner structure, exploiting granular environments that utilize a minimal selection of sampled audio, or function instead as longer, exploratory canvases detailing growth and entropy. Full of destructive edits and repetition, ‘Quartet Forensics’ seeks to embody an existing practice of electronic music manipulation while embracing sounds often labeled as errors; skipping; jumping; malfunctioning; a world of dead-ends turning in on themselves to reveal new forms and configurations.
