Having just finished studies in composition with Michael Pisaro, Underrinner has arranged a piece steeped heavily in the tradition of Cagean silence established by Cage and extended recently by groups like the Edition Wandleweiser, of which Pisaro is a part. Interestingly, Underrinner has chosen to merge the practice of field recording and performance by providing previously composed field recordings and asking the performers to place speakers about the space. The performers are to interact with the speakers, ultimately filtering out various frequencies and adjusting the spatiality of the field recording being interacted with.
In contrast with the stillness and quietness of the sound, the composer has asked quite a bit of the performers in the sense that, in addition to playing notes on pitched instruments and interacting with the speakers, each of the ten field recording is to be turned on and off at particular second markings. To achieve this accurately, anteroom composed an additional track for each recording provided with the playback cuts composed in so that we could avoid having to achieve this manually in performance.
