The 3D Melody (MP3)

Playful spatialization by Sharp Hands

Another short piece, under a minute, following yesterday’s bit of flute-based looping. Today it is a plucky, downtempo melody on what has the playful insouciance of a toy piano. Best listened to on headphones, which allow for the use of stereophonic spatialization to become apparent. A lot of times the phrase “headphone music” suggests something spacey and proggy, but here each note moves back and forth, its placement as much a part of the melodic development as its relative pitch. The track is credited to Brooklyn-based Sharp Hands:
