Dual Mono

The third Barreca | Leimer release takes a new approach to remote collaboration. The process used for producing Dual Mono is designed to destabilize established habits and predilections in favor of responding to the music in at least subjectively new ways. It is also designed to reduce the illusion of control, to become more responsive to and accepting of unpredicted outcomes, and to give the music—as much as possible—a voice less tampered with.

Each piece for Dual Mono was authored by only one of the participants, the other receiving MIDI data and being limited to revoicing the composition. With a general goal of maintaining a result that was somewhat, though not purely, minimalist in sympathy, each piece was then assembled in its final form by the originator, now limited to controlling relative levels, crossfades, editing and processing.
