Frozen Tung of The Bell is an improvisation for bass clarinet (Byom), tuba (DeBonis) and Max processing. A system of semi-randomly triggered loopers with variable playback speeds, the interplay between two acoustic instruments and the computer travels down the well-worn path of recursion. To be informed by the computer, is to be informed by our own sound, treated anew each time.

The remaining pieces on the album arose from further processing of the same recording session. Contour Casting (Byom) and Drawn Forth (DeBonis) are reworkings informed by our respected electronic music approaches. In Split Brass the bass clarinet and tuba are stripped away, leaving instead multiple (re)processed layers of the original recording.

bass clarinet/production: Byom
