      Through improvisation Gregory Taylor finds patterns, moods and
      native flavors in his electronic realizations. By varying the speed
      and timbre of the cycling percussive tones that flow throughout
      his CD AMALGAM: ALUMINUM/HYDROGEN (43'43"), Taylor
      exposes the audience to everything from gamelan-like chimes
      and churning laboratory patterns down to searching arpeggios
      and random lumpy rhythms. His probing leads to a deserted
      digital plane across which cyber winds howl and synthetic sound
      is reduced to the molecular level. Following this sonic
      exploration all the way down to the level of subterranean drones
      and Geiger counter clicks, the piece unwinds into a slow motion
      of breathing coarse metallic sighs, and ultimately this work's
      dissolution. Machine music can sound organic. Gregory Taylor's
      expressionistic sonic minimalism is powered by this
      over-arching concept, and built in the spontaneity of the moment.

      Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from the live
      performance of AMALGAM: ALUMINUM/HYDROGEN by Gregory
      Taylor
