Work • 2006 • Stereo acousmatic

Based around a single recording of trumpeter Chris Dowding, recorded in the University of Huddersfield's St. Paul's Hall, Hades was one of three pieces making up Adam Jansch's portfolio submitted for the Composition (Studio) MMus programme at Goldsmiths College.

Within the piece, the original audio material was treated with little more than time-stretching and transposition processes (in AudioSculpt). The result is an eerie and discomforting soundworld, built entirely from the qualities intrinsic to the timbre of the source instrument.
