Musik Antique (2005)

from Symbiotica (a cross-cultural mixup)

(from recorded segments by Ensemble De Organographia and Atrium Musicae de Madrid on ancient instruments)  

A variety of recorded tracks were sampled from some of the earliest music available from the Ancient Greeks (circa 1700-2500 years ago). Each track was separated into short musical segments, naturally bounded by silences. The segments were then recombined independently of one another, and separated by varied durations of silence. The duration of each silence was derived from the segment's numeric position in the sequence. Finally, the segments were modified digitally.
