Abstract

Like most Tokyo metro stations, Takadanobaba is filled with the very noisy and chaotic sounds of humanity. Sometimes such places seem paradoxically empty and almost still. In this work a field recording of the station underwent an analogous stripping of sound - removing all but the most prominent frequencies. The resulting "empty" recording was then annotated and orchestrated for an ensemble of 8 performers. The work was written for and is dedicated to performers from the Tone List group.
