Label: Gravity Wave    
Released in: USA    


"asleep, street, pipes, tones (2009) is an investigation of the sounding properties of pipes and streets interspersed with a duo for bass clarinet and electric guitar.

The investigations form ten three-minute episodes, assembled in studio by Pisaro from samples-mostly organ, but also tiny snippets of vocal music and a single piano chord-and field recordings.

The instrumental parts, arranged in nine sections, also three minutes each, develop over the course of the 63'40" duration of the piece from a single tone into long descending melody.

In most sections the samples and instruments are augmented by sine tones."-Gravity Wave
