65 Second Bycicle

2008

A 65 second piece written in SuperCollider, composed for Prof. Folkmar Hein's surprise birthday and retirement concert (one of over 85 65 second pieces!).

Program Notes

Many bikes in Berlin, sleek, purposeful, fast, everywhere. Cut to Pasadena (long story), a big garage in a museum and a forgotten bike. A key on a keychain and some fun hitting the spokes of the wheels and other metal parts with it. Recorder in hand. Materials for this analysis / resynthesis piece that does not really end at 65 (seconds). My heartfelt desire for many more (happy all of them) and a chance of making a far longer piece next time! Reminds me of good times in Berlin...
