Alive
David Lowe - 1999

Fantasy.... "A wild or fantastic product ofthe imagination, a day-dream ".

What happens inside your head when you day-dream? It must be something spectacular in order to pull away your complete attention. To place you in 'another world'. Imagine what you're imagining and then imagine how you're imagining it. The structure for this piece is based on the following idea: you think of something. As you think about that something, another image enters your head, and another and another until you're dreaming. Your mind is lost. You snap away from your thoughts and re-enter the real world again but thoughts keep returning into your head. Eventually they die away. The piece contains large rapid panning effects which makes listening to this piece a three-dimensional experience. This work was created using one sample - a hole punch.
