Product details

In 2006 Google Earth was just a year or two old and provided an unprecedented ability to view the Earth as photographed from satellites in space on a home computer. One could view remote exotic locations as quickly as one's own residence. Zooming in, the image would be highly pixilated - but gradually filled in with detailed resolution. Satellite Mapping (2012) attempts to capture that process of detail gradually revealed. It is based on a fixed-register chord of 16 pitches and is exclusively limited to those pitches. In musical terms, this begins with spacious chords, gradually developing more detail until finally revealed as an unbroken bit-stream of data flowing in rapid arpeggios across the full length of the keyboard. The piece was only half-finished in 2006, as I could only partially play what I could hear and notating the concept also proved elusive. Late in 2012, I came back to the piece and found a way through.
