    AT FIRST LISTEN I felt cold pockets of air circulating about the room as a lilting hum subtly became recognizable as guitar resonance ("Cyclorama Lift 2"). I paid no attention to what these pieces consisted of. What they really were recordings of. A few minutes after grabbing a drink and sitting down across from my ProAcs - I started reading the liner notes describing a work exploring a "pure electronic resonance." Over an hour later I concluded, this was a steady liquefied note changing pitch and without rest. An electronic thrumming wave trapped in a small aluminum box - floating in space - tied to a shelf - on Mir.

    Cyclorama Lift is performed with an empty
    circuit, basically a feedback loop using as main
    instruments two 8-second delays and a 4-band parametric
    equalizer. There's no input, the loop is constantly
    nourishing and digesting itself.

    Best way to describe this sound form is to imagine connecting the dots to JOHN CAGE's "Freeman Etudes, Books 1 & 2" using a no input feedback loop. Travelocity in microgravity. When it's done you'll still hear it.
