The Door Project

At ICMC 2000 in Berlin a prominent sound was a squeaking door. This sound was recorded and posed as a composition project. The first manifestation was a concert in La Habana as part of ICMC 2001. The second manifestation is the CD (Alta 02 CD)


The CD is 78mins long and comes with a 24 page booklet giving notes on the pieces and biographies of the composers.
