about

Portraits/Self-Portraits is a re-imagining and re-orchestration of the sounds and processes found on sum and difference, an album featuring Peter Evans, Jim Altieri, and me on laptop. After working on this album in the fall of 2010, these were the sounds in my head, so I decided it would be wise to follow my brain where it wanted to go and make instrumental versions of these electro-acoustic tracks. In general the sounds you will hear are impressions of sounds on the album - it would be nearly impossible to find one to one correspondences. Yet, there are some exceptions. The violin part of Jim Altieri... is a direct transcription of Jim's playing, which I transcribed with Jim's help and could never have written without him. The trumpet part at the opening and closing of Peter Evans... is very close to some of Peter's playing on the album, and in general the brass writing is deeply inspired by his playing. This piece is dedicated to Jim and Peter, without whose sheer musicianship and sick senses of humor this music would not be possible.
