about

Composed and recorded by Bryce Hample

Bass Viola Da Gamba, Piano, electronics

recorded at Graft Gallery, ABQ, NM

Recorded in stereo in the center of the gallery using only the natural reverberation of the concrete gallery space, Each voice was performed from a different location of the room, starting in the corners.
Microtonal passages swarm and press in against the droning overtones – compositional fingerprints from an otherwise invisible hand.
Accompanying these compositions are location-based videos full of overhead and drone landscape shots that breathe with a subtle movement that resist the temptation to fall into recognizable patterns. They hold on the inner stillness of winter or transient light dancing on the tops of trees.
