about

Icicle Harvest is an experimental ambient-minimalist piece featuring piano, toy piano, celeste, marimba, and vibraphone.

I composed several related (and very simple) rhythmic motives, then used pseudo-random processes to choose which motive, which key, which notes in the scale, and the length and tempo of each section.

Then I recorded long takes on each instrument. With each motive, I was allowed to repeat, to change the duration of rest in between each repeat, and make other minor variations.

The recording features some minor editing but I allowed a lot of it to be imperfect and human.
