about

"Sound is all our dreams of music. Noise is music's dreams of us"
—Morton Feldman

Diamond Pulses started as a mockup for a microtonal Plinko game/sound-installation. I was looking through James Tenney’s musical sketches, and he worked a lot of ideas out on graph paper. I decided to get a pad of the stuff. Of course, what I immediately scrawled out on the first page was a combination of The Price is Right and an 11-limit tuning system. I pictured people dropping a quarter in at the top, and listening as it bounced down an obstacle course of just-tuned piano wire. It would still make a fun sound installation someday, and maybe I’d get rich one quarter at a time.

But, that seed of Diamond Pulses instead grew into this album, which I am excited to share with you. Somewhere between the structural rigidity and spaced out washes of sound, there is a memory of standing by the ocean at 2am, listening to the hypnotic sets of waves and hearing the roaring swells of the city - a relentless parade of numbers and words ringing silent bells, making it impossible to focus on the endless business of trying to square an imperfect circle.
