    These are the fifth and sixth movements of my piece Hunting for Mushrooms. They are programmatic pieces which means that they attempt to represent topics that are extra musical. The first piece starts with a single tone which represents the bus stop. A second tone comes in from the left which represents a kid waiting at the stop. A third tone comes in from the right which is another kid. The kid on the left gradually makes his way to the right and offers the other a cigaret. As he takes it his pitch drops to a more perfect harmony with the other kid and the bus stop. Soon the bus comes and takes the kids away, leaving the bus stop to sit alone once again. The second piece is a bus ride. On the right is the bus and the chords on the left are passing cars. Every once in a while a tone will be added to the bus which represents a new passenger. After a while a car is forced by another into the bus making them crash. The tone sounding at the end is that of the only surviving passenger on the bus. The video footage was greatly inspired by Jean Cocteau's technique of reversal footage. I shot it shortly after watching his film Orpheus from 1950 and also a short film he did shortly after which contained a large amount of reversal footage. The piece as a whole is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck, accompanied by a film projector and written word on chalkboard. I have yet to determine how I will present the chalkboard aspect online. Visit my tumblr account kurtvernonroembke.tumblr.com/

      This is the fourth movement of my piece Hunting for Mushrooms. The first part of the music is me improvising on a single take. The second half (after the drone switches) is a more structured and metered variation on the first part. The firework sounds was a result of an accident I made in a synthesis patch. The actors seen are my two friends Logan Weber and Keith Davis. The piece as a whole is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck, accompanied by a film projector and written word on chalkboard.

        This is the third movement of my piece Hunting for Mushrooms. This is another area of IPFW that I thought was beautiful. Sometimes we get in the habit of appreciating beauty for just a few seconds and the moving on. This segment is intended to contradict that thought process. The piece as a whole is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck, accompanied by a film projector and written word on chalkboard.

              This is the first movement of my piece called Hunting for Mushrooms. It is the only piece unaccompanied by video. I personally like to listen to it with my eyes closed.
