manipulated sound

Artist Statement
This composition was inspired by sounds of my 19th century Pittsburgh house. I sampled many sounds from the house, but the final composition is made from just 4 samples of creaking and slamming doors. These samples total approximately 15 seconds of raw sound material that was manipulated to create this 1 hour composition.
About the Artist
R. Weis has been composing with manipulated sound since the mid-1980's. His work has been heard in many performance spaces, galleries, museums, and on radio in the United States and Europe.
