Put together again - Sound piece

Sound piece

This is a sonic study based loosely on the ways in which the mind remembers.  Experiences are stored as 'engrams' across many different parts of the brain.  When a cue triggers a memory, the brain recombines the engrams to experience that memory.  The act of remembering happens in the present and is not a true replay of what happened, but a combination of the retrieved fragments and the present context. 

This piece originates from a well-worn recording of a Scott Joplin rag that I listened to often as a child.  It is created through improvisation.
