Work Overview

Biome explores an organic mass of sound that grows around the ensemble. Each player occupies their own distinct time world, exploring a sonic identity that is unique and disparate from the group. These sonic worlds intersect to form a blurry, bubbling ecosystem of sound, which be experienced in a variety of different ways. As a listener, one could try to pick out an individual voice from the crowd, following along as it ducks and weaves through the texture, or one may instead try to absorb the soundworld as a whole, paying special attention to moments of homogeneity.
