SIXTEEN HOLLYWOOD SILENCE (2009)
Sixteen Hollywood Silence is a cycle of sixteen works for full orchestra. Each work is a transcription of one of sixteen field recordings made on adjacent street corners in Hollywood, California. The recordings are created by a human, while the transcriptions are produced by a computer application designed to replicate the recordings for an orchestra. Sixteen Hollywood Silence also refers to John Cage’s Five Hanau Silence (1992), a work based on geographically distributed field recordings and dedicated to Metzgerstrasse Nr. 8, a political center and squat located in Hanau, Germany.
