After the success of our first record, James Wood and I are back in the studio under the moniker Aulich/Wood Trio, producing a new free improvisational extravaganza complete with jazz/electronic/dubstep/garage rock influences. At the same time, I’m working with violist, experimental performer and composer, Adam Sangster to produce a new work for Viola and Electronics. Since my master’s degree is now complete, I feel more free to share the works and recordings I submitted as part of my portfolio.
826 Harry Cowley for Electric Cello and Electronics (with score and recording), written for and dedicated to Christine Avis.
Πολυτροπος for Bass Clarinet (with score and recording), written for and dedicated to James Wood.
“…und nicht vielmehr Nichts?” for Solo Piano (with score).
In less than a few weeks, I will self-release a new collection of electronic and found sound works entitled ‘Slenderman’ (yes, after the internet meme); not just because this character fascinates me on a personal level, but it in part reflects our brief, largely superficial connections to each other and to ourselves via machines. The mythology built up around Slenderman is in one instant both terrifying and arbitrary. It amazes me that a loose tapestry of an uncountable number of imaginations, each weave limited and filtered by its artificial interface with another, could invoke very real emotions. Each track in the release was constructed with this interface in mind.
