This record's title is derived from the German word 'staub', which translates in English to 'dust'. The compositions on this record are intended to reveal the 'artifacts' of the technologies and instruments in operation. These 'artifacts' are revealed and made audible through intentional and non-intentional methods.
As some of us lament the disappearing of audio formats with such 'artifacts' (see audio tape, vinyl) we are faced with the uncertain future of 'perfect', non-physical, hyper-compressed audio formats/technologies that embody no such character or personality. Staub showcases these imperfections.
I like to regard Staub as an encapsulation of my current interests in composition and approaches to various forms of technology.
