Notes and Editorial Reviews

Wayne Siegel (b. 1953) is a Californian composer who settled in Denmark and is a pioneer of the interaction between computers and acoustic instruments. The title work of this CD is constructed solely from the voice of a singer which has been transformed into percussive elements, pitches and melodies. Other intriguing effects on this album include electronic canons, layering and delayed echoes, all putting the acoustic solo instruments into new and exciting perspectives.
