Biography: Aaron Oppenheim is a composer who recently completed a BFA in Music studies at the Simon Fraser University School for Contemporary Arts. He also studied electroacoustic composition at Concordia University in Montréal, and before that completed a BFA in Film Studies at Concordia. While most of his work has been in electroacoustic composition, during the past few years he has also been exploring acoustic composition, live electronic music performance, and generative sound installations, and audiovisual work. His pieces have been performed at Concordia University’s EuCuE concerts, SFU’s Student Composers concerts, and Vancouver’s Sonic Boom concert series.
Program Notes: Long drones were created by recording various instruments (including guitar, ukelele, musical saw, accordion, melodica, trombone and voice) using a max/msp patch which only recorded when the sound exactly matched a chosen pitch. Whenever an instrument would waver even slightly off-pitch, the patch would cease recording. This resulted in clicky, glitchy drones. These drones were then mixed together into this piece. No other processing has taken place.
