john hudak and stephan mathieu - "pieces of winter"
pieces of winter by john hudak and stephan mathieu" is based on one composition by each of the two sound artists originally made for a small personal edition as season greetings for friends in the winter of 2002/2003. john hudaks recordings for "winter garden" were based on a contact microphone buried overnight in snow that turned to ice, then he recorded snow falling on this enveloping ice. the basic recordings for stephan mathieus "nuit blanche" were made on christmas eve 2002 with eva-lucy mathieu on ocarina and himself on pump organ. Finally these original pieces were exchanged and transformed into a calm, minimal suite of digital variations.
