about

Cathedral Scan translates the architectural plans of Gothic cathedrals into open-ended musical scores via custom software. Treating the plans as a kind of map, in the live performance Carrington navigates through them to form the set list. Different scanning groups may be controlled to resonate at different frequencies and speeds, creating rich harmonics and polyrhythms. Large windows in the original structures essentially act as rests in the scanning composition, with the distribution of columns and walls giving each plan a unique rhythm that can be played any myriad of ways.

The album is edited from a live concert in a large church space, and combines the direct signal created in software with the immense natural reverberation of the performance space.
