Duane Pitre | A Circle and the Sound that Fills It
Net Release Date - January 2008
Physical in September 2008
Pitre is a composer, performer, improviser, and sound-artist. He has
been recognized for creating different types of abstract sounds such as
dense drones and minimalist/contemporary classical compositions.
Pitre (originally from New Orleans) spent the better part of the 90s in San Diego.
He began exploring drone, minimalism, and ambient music at the closing
of the decade, and in September 2004 he moved to Brooklyn, to be closer
to one of the nexuses of experimental music. There, Pitre began
in-depth studies of music and sound including: the physics of sound,
the involvement of mathematics in tuning and temperament, the ancient
tuning system of
Just Intonation and other microtonal tuning systems, as well as the
minimalist composers La Monte Young, Terry Riley, and Steve Reich.
