Frank Rosaly uses drums, percussion, and electronics as the core of improvised source material that he segments, orchestrates, and arranges into a sound program before editing and ultimately dividing the material down to two channels.

Rosaly, Frank: Centering and Displacement [VINYL & CD] (Utech Records)
Label: Utech Records    
Released in: USA    

"To manipulate a recording of the improvised process is to directly dilute spontaneous conception, and thank god for that. Centering and Displacement was composed in the winter-summer of 2008 in Chicago.A body of improvised source material was collected, segmented and organized by a simple chance operation. These segments were then orchestrated into a sound program and arranged by order of the strict composed form. At times, the score also regulated post-recorded effects to manipulate the original material. As the material was edited, it was divided into six separate channels (three stereo tracks). Each pair of channels was transferred to a cd and each was played on three cd players simultaneously, creating a simple six-channel sound installation. In 2011, the dense six-channel score was revised and reduced to two channels (one stereo track), which is now the final, preferred version. The result is a centrifugal record filled with moments of surprise and complexity. Drums, percussion and electronics are at the core, revealing themselves with precision and radiant color. Frank Rosaly has created a piece that stands apart in the field of challenging music. Art by Zachary Rossman."-Utech Records
