8 The Quiet American
stream trackload mp3   Seven Minutes in Tibet
Lhasa, Tibet
An exercise in catoptromancy (divination
with mirrors). In this case, a palindrome made from distorted reflections. The skeleton of this piece is a Chinese
propagandamusic video playing in Lhasa airport. The TV had trouble with the video MPEG stream, so the audio
stuttered, stalled and stopped -- its unintentional glitch-core mirroring cracks in the great wall around Tibet.
Other compositional elements reflect the iceberg-tip the tourist encounters: street musicians, the shuffle-hiss of
the faithful prostrating themselves, the crash and bang and drone of religious ritual. Worksongs and spot
welding. Prayerwheels and the radios of the PLA. Source sound was recorded with Sonic Studios quasi-binaural
microphones to minidisc, then manipulated on a PC.
