dogs in english porcelain is a composition for electronics,
field recordings, viola, violin, cello and acoustic turntable. it was
created with many layers of very quiet elements that advance and
recede, forming the episodic structure of the piece. the overlapping of
electronic and environmental sounds with extended technique and
traditional playing disturbs the boundaries separating the natural and
artificial, the intentionaland the incidental. the counterpoint and
rapid changes between sections add to the nonlinear feel, keeping the
listener in a state of acute alertness. in this world, the chamber
becomes the meadow but also the alley and the suburban street.
