Sunshine Machine 6 – Audio

Back to your leaves, roots and branches.

Whilst the video will explain more as to the reasoning behind this piece I’d like to take this chance to discuss the length of these recordings. At university we were discussing the definition of music. Our lecturer suggested the definition by, I think, Stockhausen. I’m paraphrasing here but essentially it was that you just play a note as long as you feel you should.

That’s the kind of approach I use with the installations. Some of them might last 2 days and other might only last 2 minutes. This one is on the much shorter side of things only clocking in at just over 6 minutes. But the reasoning behind it is that this is the correct length of the piece. I’m aware I’m drifting off into philosophy and nonsensical ranting so I leave you with the download link. See if you think the length is right.
