dw031 - Archive - Silent Night (Shepherds Quake)
This is a twenty-minute piece derived entirely from a brief recording of a music box playing "Silent Night". The machine winds down; it creaks and grinds and eventually the audio is overtaken by scrambled reiterations of itself; it stretches and slows, speeds and warps, chimes and clangs, sprinkles, stutters, sputters, and melts, till eventually all that's left is a glassy ghost of its former self.
I've subtitled the piece "Shepherds Quake" to commemorate the fact that even on the first Christmas, people in the service industry had to work. Whatever religion you are, and especially if you're of no religion at all, I hope you at least get the day off this year.
