about

This piece is meant to be performed with a quadraphonic output but it can easily be performed/recorded in stereo, as it is recorded on this album. If you listen to this recording through headphones at the 7 minute mark, you may be able to imagine sounds from the left and right rear corners of the room. I am very grateful that Eli sent me his piece in response to my Call for Scores because Fractus III was the inspiration for this album. - Meerenai

lyrics

Fractus III: Aerophoneme explores themes of self-exploration, transcendence, and divine retribution. The outset of the piece is curious, nebulous, and arrhythmic, struggling to find a sense of security and place. At first, only the front speakers are active. A regular pulse begins to emerge, and the flute eventually settles into a state of symbiosis with the electronic sounds. Tension grows between the flute and computer and comes to a head, at which point the pulse dissolves, all four speakers become active, and noise aggressively spreads throughout the performance space. When the dust clears, the flute briefly enjoys a dreamlike, emotionally charged melody, but is gradually and forcibly exiled by the electronics. - Eli Fieldsteel
