Minute Distances was composed in 2005 for the Vox Novus 60X60 project and is 59.721 seconds long. The structure of this work is based upon an iso-rhythm that reduces bit by bit during each repeat. The work was realized entirely using Csound, and it uses only samples of a marimba as its sound source. The marimba samples are at time slightly modified; however, throughout the work, the essense of the marimba remains. Minute Distances is representative of my interest in textural shape, spatialization, balancing macro and micro composition processes, and mono-thematicism.
