NIU music faculty Spring 1990

Works by and with some of us and others, some old, some new.

A brief send-up of academic life with Harry Castle (TX synth), Rebecca Ayer (viola), and Dave Ayer (vocals, tape delay).

Temporary Loss of Faculties Take 4

Another take. The performance at the NIU Composition Faculty Recital was not successfully recorded. What we have is these preparatory sessions. Harry liked Take 3 better.

A sound experiment with Rebecca Ayer on viola using a Schertler dynamic pickup, through Dave’s time machine loop setup and voice-over. A completely impromptu session recorded Memorial Day 2009.
