Corporate Coitus // From the CD Giraffes

"I composed Corporate Coitus while working as an audio technician at a company which produced background music for businesses. When the company CEO was interviewed by the on-line business journal WallStreetReporter.com, I used the audio portion of the interview as source material. I extracted the extra-verbal sounds—the “ahs” and “ums” and intakes of breath—for use in this new piece. The title of Corporate Coitus came about as I feel that sex and business are always somehow connected.
I heard the piece as an imaginary sex act gathering intensity to a climax followed by a gradual de-tumescence."
