Whispers of Time for fixed media (2013)
Whispers of Time is a 14-minute sonic exploration on the elapse of time, the stretch of time, and the reverse of time. Various sound samples have been manipulated and processed in ways that significantly affect the time domain of the samples, using mostly custom patches made with Cycling 74’s Max 6 program.
Throughout the composition, one hears layers of gestures move through a three-dimensional sonic space, emulating as well as alternating between hyper-real and surreal soundscapes. The multi-layer projection of the sound stage adds much depth to the music, and creates a sound world existed only in one’s imagination. The juxtaposition of contrasting events in various lengths eventually becomes an inspiration for the title.
