Seth Paynter and Kevin Patton : Fresnel


Fresnel features Seth Paynter playing soprano saxophone, mizwiz, a north African double-reed double-flute, and bahu, a Chinese metal-reed bamboo flute. He is playing through Kevin’s listening instrument brundleFLY that responds to elements of Seth’s playing through audio analysis. A dense sound-world that is as frequently solitary as it is wild, Fresnel explores the solo improvisation in prosthesis. The computer wraps itself around Seth, extending and altering his sound to create a multiplexed monophony that sounds as ancient as it does futuristic.

Fresnel was recorded at the REMS Lab studios, Rice University,
Houston Texas.
