DAY TWO-HUNDRED AND SIX
I Don’t Like Your Tone
Have you ever written an email and the reply you get is: “I don’t like your tone.”? Perhaps unsurprisingly, this has happened to me much more than once, and I usually, absolutely do not see it coming. It happened again today. So, again, unsurprisingly, I used it as fodder as the 365 today.
What is tone? (Taken from the online dictionary!)
This is 8 cello tracks staggered and starting on f#, e, c…etc. The notes themselves are bent to each other just a little, adjusted to micro tones as they’re played. Sometimes the sound is made “unlikable” by rougher strokes (changing the weight or speed of the bow on the string) and intonation, and a bit more “likable” by being more kind in general. I find it very hypnotic, but I didn’t run it for very long. I wanted you to hear the whole thing.
Pearl and the Beard arrived back in New York yesterday, and I have been arranging ever since. I’ve got a few recording projects outside the 365 that needed attending to, and they’re still not finished. But not to worry! I’m posting my brains out for the 365!
