A little improv on the new live layout. The layout is not finished but operational. Unfortunately I chose the wrong camera angle but you can still get the gist. Builds first and then the Arc stuff comes in.
This piece is an update of the first musique concrète song by Pierre Schaeffer "Etude aux chemnis de fer" (Study of Trains). In Schaeffer's original he manipulates recordings of trains for his composition. This piece similarly uses sounds of Oakland's Bart train as the palate for the composition. All of the sounds except for the synth and the vocal line come from sounds in the Bart.
The concept of the piece takes a rider on a musical journey on the Bart to the Fruitvale station where a wormhole opens (interrupting "your normal commute") and transports the listener to January 1, 2009 2:15 PST when Bart Officer Johannes Mehserle shot and killed Oscar Grant.
