9.50 - On Sale

This album was recorded using an elaborate set-up of 24 contact microphones placed over various parts of the ancient "Ospedale dei Battuti" tower in San Vito al Tagliamento, Italy.
The 24 microphones were then plugged into a PA system and processed by manipulating the volume faders and several analog filters. A guitar, a Fender Rhodes piano and some electronic effects are also thrown in the mix, for an end result that is a lush tapestry of deep drones and delicate field recordings, with a melodic touch resulting from the use of these additional instruments.
This piece was commissioned in 2005 by the contemporary Art Festival Hic et Nunc.
