Fingerling (2002) ~10'00"
I'm not really interested in making 'cool sounds' anymore.. Fingerling is the 3rd in a series of tape pieces in which i have decidedly focused my attention away from timbre and toward form, gesture. and pseudo-narrative elements. Although i have personal attachments to most of the sounds in this piece, it is not required that you know what these are. Hopefully they will conjure up at least some kind of memory or feeling. -mi
