Doubt... is dedicated to the memory of M – a good friend and an extraordinary musician. M’s recorded improvisations on contrabass were integral to this project, both as inspiration and as musical material. Short samples were used as generative sound slices for the piece; processed and re-composed to create the sonic landscape using MAX/MSP, AudioMulch, and Reaper. All of the processing is temporal, creating a kind of time-machine of this great musician's work. I hope that Doubt... appropriately expresses the deep admiration I have for his work.
