Light is Calling for violin and audio playbackComposer note:
Light is Calling for cello and audio playback
I wrote Light Is Calling
in my studio on Desbrosses Street in the days and months after September 11, 2001. I live close to Ground Zero, and I wanted to make something beautiful after witnessing something ugly and tragic. The piece juxtaposes the sound of an acoustic violin with warped electronic pulses played backwards.
Bill Morrison, with whom I collaborated on Decasia
, created an accompanying film to Light Is Calling
by reprinting and re-editing a scene from the black-and-white 1926 movie, The Bells
