“I became conscious of an entirely new effect produced by this familiar music. I seemed to feel the music detaching itself and projecting itself in space. I became conscious of a third dimension in the music. I call this phenomenon ‘sound projection’. . .” – Edgard Varèse, 1936 [emphasis mine]
The Inchindown Tunnels
As I mentioned in my first post, I’m currently working on new compositions inspired by the underground tunnels / oil tanks in Inchindown, Scotland. This post will provide some background on this fascinating place & what led me to use their sonic characteristics as a basis for these pieces.
