Cantos [2011]

This ongoing project I take the last note of every song from an album and then repeat that note - from the time it is struck until the track ends - for the duration of the original album. Because some notes end quickly while others fade out much more slowly, the new work morphs and phases in different ways throughout the length of its play.

Below are samples of works based on albums by Vic Chesnutt, Elliott Smith, Sparklehorse, etc...
