On Friday morning at 10am, I was lucky enough to run into composer Nathan Kroms Davis at EMM. Despite the fact that neither of us was quite awake yet, he was nice enough to talk to me about his work and the piece he presented at EMM.
Nathan is a programmer and musician who specializes in algorithmic music and graphic scores.
Ecology No. 4
by Nathan Kroms Davis
Ecology No. 4 is the fourth in a series of single-channel tape works that I have composed using Java software of my own design. This series of works explores models of reproduction and decay of sound structures that are suggestive (to me) of the growth and development of ecosystems in the natural world.
More of Nathan’s work, including some very interesting graphic scores can be found at web.mac.com/n.kroms.davis.
