Eighteen segments of differing material have been originated on a Roland Juno 6 and recorded. One half of these have been digitally delayed, organized and mixed down into 12 sections of approximately one minute each, on 4 channel tape. Six sections are treated with overlays and three are canons. There is an option of live accompaniment (determined by the performers) for nine of the sections. The last piece is combined and forms one continuous gesture. Each ‘window’ has been organized as an entity in itself. Relationships between them are coincidental and for contrast; they may hold events or just be separate windows for interpretation, dominating or laid back. The ‘views’ through the panes may be seen as through drawings in condensation; they may be distorted or crystal clear, occluded, diffused or reflected. The observer as incidental agent may be looking out or looking in, at different times of day, or locations. The music passes through the frames of these 12 windows. Recorded at home studio in January 1983 and mixed with Kevin Austin at the Audio-visual Department of Concordia University. JW
