Philip Mantione

Abstract:
“Depth of Field” and “Hfone” are part of a collection of electroacoustic work created over the past two years using field recordings and computer generated sounds. The title (Depth of Field) draws a sonic parallel with photography and visual imagery in terms of the relative clarity or presence of background and foreground content, and the interplay and movement between the two ideas.
