This is #7 in Sub Rosa's Framework series -- an extension of their Concrete Electronics Noise series. Benjamin Thigpen, nomad, born in the United States, immigrated to Paris at the age of 31. He studied music, literature, philosophy and aesthetics. He now composes in European studios such as GRM, EMS, Visby and STEIM, as well as in his bedroom and on the train. After six years as a teacher at IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique), he currently teaches computer music in Italy, Belgium and occasionally Sweden, while also working as a freelance musical programmer and consultant. He makes music for loudspeakers: electroacoustic works, live computer performance and interactive music for instrument(s) and computer. His music is concerned with energy, density, complexity, movement, multiplicity and violence, and often incorporates space as a primary compositional parameter. He thinks that music does not exist in time but rather creates it, and considers that music is not the art of sound but the art of the transcendence of sound. This release includes music from 2003-2007. Limited to 500 copies.
