April Triptych is a two hour long piece chronicling a typical suburban morning, afternoon, and night. Elements of three are two-fold: 1. three field recordings of a backyard in a housing complex layered and sequenced. 2. three musical elements, two utilizing traditional instruments, the third an extremely elongated renaissance madrigal using sine waves.
Thomas creates a truely unique cosmos with these four elements. Bird sounds, leaves, voices and gusts of wind are woven together with piano sprinkles and a grounding, drone-like basement, taking the listener on a long and calming voyage.
