Product details

Sensitive Spot is about tempo, in particular the slight variations and gradations of one person's personal perception of metric timing. Many takes of the same piece are recorded and overlaid, pinpointing a musical phenomena that would normally be associated with error - the inability of any human to have an exact sense of metronomic timing. In this case it is used to create something that aspires toward beauty resulting in an intricate tapestry of interwoven rhythmic patterns.
