Richard Johnson, music
This equipment request is for a composition project that I am working on as a part of my studies with Richard Karpen. There are four stages to the project, two of which require the microphone. First, I will record interviews dealing with mimicry with several people. The audio from these interviews will be manipulated in various ways and played for three improvising musicians. These musicians will attempt to imitate the interview audio with their instruments. Finally, the recordings from the interviews and the improvisations will be combined to create the composition.
