* * * Best enjoyed with headphones, or really good speakers * * * <a href="">Airborne by Leon Harrell</a>
Airborne As a composer of electroacoustic music I create pieces that take advantage of the stereo field and create a true sense of depth. Airborne is the second piece I have composed that is geared towards this idea. The main goal of the piece was to create a piece centered around flying sounds, sounds that not only move left and right but all around you as you listen. This study in 2-channel environment building sets up a large environment, hones in one a single moving sound source and midway through the piece bursts apart at the seams. Airborne was composed at the historic EMS studio at the University of Illinois.
