The Gallop


Studies for live electronics by New York composer John Also Bennett. All three tracks are single-take recordings from a performance at AB Salon in Belgium. Each of these improvisatory works document psychoacoustic aspects of JAB's approach to synthesis and sound design. Using a single digital oscillator and minimal effects processing, the resulting pieces playfully mimic nature to evoke sonic representations of galloping horses, chirping birds, and buzzing insects. Issued as a limited edition 7" stereo lathe-cut record and digital download, the release stands as a snapshot of JAB's commitment towards the exploratory potential of process and reduction.
