TAYLOR DEUPREE

1AM

12k2004

In the summertime, in the woods of new York State, the midnight insects can be at once serene and deafeningly loud. A field recording of this din of nighttime creatures was the inspiration and base for 1am.

Dense, and often aggressive, 1am is a powerful work that fuses many layers of both noise and melodic tracks over the field recording. The result, best played at high volumes, is like a high-volume equivalent of standing on the rocks outside of Deupree’s home late in the summer night.

Despite 1am’s opaque and rich sound it is not unlike the 23-minute epic “Stil.” from Deupree’s Stil. cd (12k1020). It is unwavering and highly repetitious but with enormous amounts of textural and timbral shifting.

1am is a very experimental and reactionary piece for Deupree, created in a week’s time, and emotionally charged.
