Digital Chamber Music

Attenuation and haze from Kenneth Kirschner

Kenneth Kirschner has posted one of his characteristically attenuated compositions to SoundCloud. It is a beautiful piece that hovers gracefully between the sonic realms of chamber music and digital synthesis. There are pulled bows and plinked keyboard notes, but also a wistful haze that is as if the surface noise of some moribund recording media had become part and parcel of the composition. The piece is titled “September 13, 2012,” as each of Kirschner’s works bears as its title the date of its completion.
