If Rube Goldberg Composed Music

The machines of Louise Rossiter

There’s no note accompanying Louise Rossiter’s “Opening,” which was posted a little less than three weeks ago to the composer’s SoundCloud account. It’s a bracing piece of rhythmic sound, all the material seemingly drawn from gears, engines, and other motoric devices. It sounds like looms and telegraphs, typewriters and pistons, all sewn together into a perfectly flowing structure, one metric element giving way to the next, like if Rube Goldberg composed music.
