"This project started with a commission from Eighth Blackbird and Ben
Broening to create a multi-channel composition for the University Of
Richmond's Third Practice Electroacoustic Music Festival. I wrote out a set of
instructions for each musician and recorded them separately from the rest of
the group. The first sessions with Molly, Michael, Nick and Lisa. I started to
work with their sounds, layering, processing, adding and eliminating
elements until I found something that felt musical and spatial.
The instructions were simple:, play a pattern of 3 notes, play the sound of an
animal, etc. interpretation was wide open. Molly played the sound of a
charging baby boar on her flute. Lisa played a short pattern on the piano that
I used over and over again. following the premiere of 'rush,' I did another
session with matthew and matt. this resulted in 'one violin.' From there I just
kept on going with the sounds I had recorded to produce the rest of the 
record."   (Stephen Vitiello)
