Details

Greaseball for electric guitar and computer generated tape was composed in 1992. With the exception of sampled drums and a cheesy Csound FM bass instrument, all sounds on the tape are derived from professor Joselís improvisations which I recorded in Akademie Schloss Solitude in 1992. The title derives from careful observations of professor Joselís eating methods, made while in attendance at the Darmstadt Ferienkurse fur Neue Musik, where I learned how to compose modern music.
