Pocket Music for the Space-Time Traveler
The music about to be experienced in this App is being released in the
"tradition" of a musical album. Over the last 10 years, I have gone through
several iterations in my approach to music. This release comes closet to
the way in which I have come to think about composing music.
In this technological age and in relation to my musical work in
particular, I find it castrating to perpetuate the tradition of composing
music to fixed timelines, releasing it on fixed mediums, at fixed
durations. The reason for this is that there has been a time where the
technologies were not available to make it, in anyway different.
In this sense even contemporary music, which was composed with non-fixed
ideas and parameters or which incorporated chance, in the score, still
needed to be delivered to the public, in a fixed and bounded recording
format. This often failed to allow the intrinsic properties of the score to
naturally change across different listenings, as they would if the
composition was performed live. Personally, I always thought was a major
issue, as it betrayed the composers original idea/s.
Today we have the tools to allow composers to present and deliver music
without such constrains. Following the tradition of the Walkman, it's now
common that wireless, portable devices enable us to carry "all" the world's
music, everywhere we go! The computation potential of such devices, also
provides the composer and artist to deliver music to you in new forms. This
is what why, I have chosen to create Music Eterna, as the music on this app
will not repeat itself, ever.
Welcome to Musica Eterna!
