On September 14th Sonic Sky Records will release its first title: COME ALIVE. The 36 minute nine movement piece was composed in 5.1 Surround in 2001 for the El Paso MicroHoot. It is being released now as a surround DVD.
Though COME ALIVE is not a visual product it can be played on any DVD or Blu-Ray player hooked up to a 5.1 surround system. This was the first piece of music to ever use a technique Erv Wilson suggested called “Continuous MOS” whereby the generating interval constantly changes in the background as the music material develops in the foreground. The result is that of a gradually changing array of scales that only occasionally pauses in any particular MOS tuning.
The music perpetually traverses the vast MOS territory in an linear fashion. Though technically a classical composition it borrows freely from multiple musical styles to create a unique trans-tonal approach to rhythm, harmony and melody.
