Personal Sound Concepts

by Ezekiel Honig



This is not an album, but rather, the Personal Sound Concepts online course, reworked for this format. Each section is represented in a PDF, with notes and assignments. It is meant to be followed in sequence but there is flexibility to sit with it at your own pace. (The PDF's are the bonus items that are included as part of this release.)

Personal Sound Concepts introduces the basics of using the sound around you - noninstrumental and nontraditional sound from the physical world, whether it be field recordings, objects from within the home, the air of a specific space, or anything imaginable - to make musical compositions, a practice embodied in an embrace of the idea of music as organized sound.

The goal is to orient towards thinking of the world as sample material, to listen to it differently, to change how one conceives of music and the potential of the everyday - of random objects and settings - and to take a step towards finding a unique voice, a personalized sound in an increasingly crowded creative and cultural landscape.

This version of the course is slightly different than it would be in a classroom setting, outlining the ideas and assignments, allowing for further exploration with less time constraints.

Plastic, metal, wood, and air coalesce with Rhodes, guitar, horns, and piano, pairing inviting, fuzzy chords with clunky and dirty mishaps. ... more
