Five Compositions for Amplified Sewing Machine
Initially I wanted to simply record the sewing machine at different speeds for a predetermined amount of time: two minutes of largo, two minutes or larghetto, two minutes of adagio, progressing up to a frantic presto. As an exercise it was useful, but it lacked the feeling of “music.” After some thought, I decided to focus not on the speed of the machine, but on the different mechanisms within the machine (I also recorded the machine’s vibrations through other objects such as a table and a piece of sheet metal resting against the machine’s hand wheel.). The resulting compositions each utilize different aspects of the sewing machine’s internal and external mechanisms.
