Sounds commonly associated with the road — a pop song on the radio, the weather, passing cars, the interior of a vehicle — are abstracted through electroacoustic processing in order to portray my inner roads traveled during long journeys as a vehicle passenger. The sound materials used in this composition were first used for my soundtrack created for The Hurricane Project, a play by Jennifer Fawcett premiered in February 2003 during the Rhubarb Festival at the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto (Canada).
On a Strange Road was realized in 2003 at the composer’s studio and premiered in October 2004 during the Tone Deaf Series at the Modern Fuel gallery in Kingston (Canada).
