Bright Low

Bright Low is a new experiment in ambient music.
The idea came from the interest in the rythmicity of natural sound events and the interest in organic models (forms, methods and patterns found in living systems such as the organisation of cells, to populations, communities, and ecosystems).
I started by recording a few minutes in april, on a sunny spring day in the Bogda Forest. The recording consists of different sounds of birds and insects. All high volume sounds (the ones that emerged from the background sound) were eliminated, except for the sounds of the insects that landed on one of the microphones - event that offers the listener a feeling of physical intimacy with the sound source. The resulting sound was processed with various reverberation and tape delay units thus obtaining several tracks that consist of the same sound events but placed in spaces with totally different acoustics than the original (halls, rooms, vast spaces). Bright Low is a song created by mixing all the above tracks.

Dear Daniel,
I hope this message find you well.

I am a second year graduate dance student at Tisch School of The Arts, New York University. On Nov 2006 (my first year at school), I choreographed and performed a solo dance titled Stay with the music composed by you at Tisch student showcase. Recently this solo has been selected in Dancenow NYC festival, and it will also be presented again at Dance Theater Workshop for 14th annual season, which is a very professional venue, and I am very excited about that.

A lot of my friends love the dance and also impressed by the music. Since this piece has grown and will be performed again beyond the student showcase, I figure maybe I should try to contact you.

The music I use for the dance titled "Looking Through Glass", I downloaded online on 2006. I am touched by the melody and driven by the rhythm. so I picked it right away and make a dance out of it.

I know it is a late notice, but I hope you understand.

Anyway, I hope there is a way we can talk more about it. Please contact me at after you get this random email. I really really want to thank you for the music and talk to you more.
