NEMO 032
year: 2009

project coordinator:Nick Robinson
mastering: Nick Robinson
artwork:Nick Robinson

The inspiration for this project was to place some restraints on composition 4 tracks, 4 instruments from a related musical family, 4 minutes long. I wanted to encourage music with perhaps a stronger emphasis on melody and harmony than on the textural approach of some CT projects.

dco - guitars (electric, semi-acoustic and electrocoustic) variously strummed, plucked, picked, e-bowed and Jellyfished). Constructed in Acid Pro 6; edited and recombinated in AudioStudio 8.

The piece was inspired by last year's 125th anniversary celebrations of the august academic organisation which permits me gainful employment in one of it's libraries.
125 is used for notation and tempo. Also notes derived from the letters of the geographic location - C A D E F - inform other tonal information. Chord structures were derived from these notes and numbers, hence a melodic structure CDG DEA GAD, a 7/4 pattern CA/D/FF
(transposed a 5th at one point for reasons of lax information management but retained for musicality), and amongst others, a chord sequence incorporating minor and major relative tones:

C Dm G - Am F Em - D Em A - Bm G F#m - G Am D - Em C Bm

And a finale in 9/8 based once more on the upward spiral of CDG DEA GAD speeded-up with a touch of time compression to achieve the 4 minute time frame.
