Assimilations of constructed pitches waste away into an ad hoc arrangement of undifferentiated fields where wood, metal and any other material in percussionist Ted Byrnes’ striking range, weld, shred, transpose and invert into a microtonal cyclone that could undulate deadening silence. In what could be a Formula One joyride, but unstrapped and seated haphazardly with a prepared instrument, i.e. power drill in one hand, Byrnes oscillates the dashboard of paraphernalia pushing limits, testing the physicality of the vernacular. Topological noise-scapes shift in rearrangements: its definitive encounter, real and free of subject/object bifurcation, leaves the listener unaware of any technicality, only to note conscientious maneuverings.
