Sheet Music

I’m rethinking sheet music as part of my commission for the Apartment House ensemble.

The sound of paper itself is so rich. Each paper quality opens up a world of sound which keeps changing when used. Sometimes it sounds like paper. Sometimes like the microtonal rustling of leaves. Or the sea. Sometimes it sounds like a faint distortion.

This is sheet music.

Glassine Tissue Paper – Sonic Sketchbook #15

Taking you to your childhood photo album;
to the lady in a documentary proudly illustrating her history with newspaper cutouts;
to the uncle with the exotic stamps collection.
It also sounds a bit like a sea wave.
Or like it just as it is.
