"December Steps" is a series of 8 electro-acoustic works created in December of 2012. Each work was made by processing raw material created on the viola.
At the time of their creation I was obsessed with the paintings of Gerhard Richter and the grey sky of New York City. Both of these influences led me to create static musical spaces built around the idea of decay, erasure, and the ephemerality of sound.
With "December Steps" I tried to make musical objects you could listen to attentively, use as ambient noise, or turn on and forget about.
