\ˈā-ˌtüd, - ˌtyüd\

1. a piece of music for the practice of a point of technique

2. a composition built on a technical motive but played for its artistic value

Etudes is a collection of musical studies improvised on a Eurorack modular synthesizer. Every piece in this series was constructed to practice a new technique or explore a different module. Recorded in real time into a 6 channel field recorder with only the most minimal of post production, Etudes is an archive of improvisational moments in time.

Released: August 1, 2016
