pogram notes:

In minute | from within the material results out of unconventional recording techniques, where microphones are placed inside the resonant body of each of the percussive objects. Through this process, I am exploring how the inner acoustics process sound and highlight the sonic nuances and minute intricacies that are otherwise masked. Special emphasis is given to the perception of space, as the virtual space materialized out of the acoustic and electronic medium goes through various stages of transformation.

Rebecca Lloyd-Jones, in her recital program notes, writes: "Exploring the minute details of human action, Papatrechas' minute | from within explores rhythmic structures and patterns, coupling with this a tactile approach to gesture. Within the simplicity of a single touch, the work combines lyrical yet rigid lines, which encompass a rich and extremely broad spectrum of sonorities for the listener to connect to; with the micro finesses of each touch being enhanced through the amplification of the resonances produced by found objects and conventional instruments."

Composition, audio & video recording, mixing, mastering, and production by Theocharis Papatrechas
