Derek Rogers sculpted these six compositions from live performances, organizing them using strings and synthesizers, and employing digital processing and granular synthesis with concert and field recordings, creating richly complex works that evolve with beautiful pacing.

Silence is Being Substituted

Rogers, Derek : Silence is Being Substituted (Glistening Examples)

Label: Glistening Examples    
Released in: USA    

"Silence is Being Substituted is mostly sculpted from live performances, recreated and rearranged as needed. I utilized strings and synthesizers, and employed digital processing and granular synthesis with concert and field recordings in ways I hadn't before. Perhaps this album finds me making a more sincere and ambitious to composition and form. I tried to be especially cognizant of pacing and texture and worked to find the emotional core of these pieces, while still maintaining the foundational opacity that I always strive to maintain."-Derek Rogers

" (b. 4 September 1980) is a musician active in electronic composition, drone, free-improv, ambient, and noise textures. He utilizes computer processes as well as traditional instrumentation and field recordings to create emotionally resonant work, tending toward long forms and soundscapes."
