The Deeps

from Pentecost by Scott Blasco



Scott Blasco: THE DEEPS (2017)

Program note:

THE DEEPS articulates a single gesture divided into three contrasting sections, drawn from a recorded sample of boiling water. Though the source material is never completely obscured, it is filtered and altered in order to bring into super-real relief its contrasts and textural drama, evoking more profound imagery than its rather mundane beginnings might suggest.

Additional notes:

Three sections follow the durations of the movements of 4'33" -- I wrote it initially to submit to a call for electronic pieces of that duration, but didn't end up sending it in because of an exclusivity clause.

The only sound source is a barely altered start to finish recording of the electric kettle in my office heating water for coffee. As the sounds began to come into shape and the deep wateriness of it emerged, I decided to make the final *ding!* sound more like an anchor hitting the rocky bottom than the polite mechanical notification that it was time for tea.
