A BRIEF PORTRAITURE
recorded string orchestra
Recorded in the Fall of 2017.
All recording, audio production and instruments performed by Richie.
Each part is tripled, recorded three times over, to give further clarity and showcase the intentionality of an individual line accounting for a total of 360 strings in its fullest state. The recording is presented in a double canonic form: amassing panned left and right parts simultaneously. The piece is presented first in its entirety, tutti, then gradually realizes its construction over the duration of the recording, top (part 60) to bottom (part 1). Each part is introduced with a maximized decibel level that gradually reduces to accommodate for the following parts introduced.
