Analog #1 (Noise Study)

James Tenney

Analog #1 (Noise Study)

Analog #1 (Noise Study), Tenney’s first piece at Bell Labs, was inspired by the daily journey between New Jersey and Manhattan, through the Holland Tunnel and heavy New York traffic. Technical note: Noise Study was originally released on Decca DL9103, Music from Mathematics.
