Mancala Variations (2008)

In 2007, I began a weekly podcast of electroacoustic music. The intention was for me to create a new piece each week and send it out into the great vastness of the internet. At the beginning of 2008, I took a slightly different approach to the weekly pieces. Instead of composing many smaller works, I decided to compose a piece on the “installment plan.” I recorded sounds from my mancala game board, wrote a theme using those sounds, and each week composed a new variation. The piece was completed for my podcast’s first anniversary on February 28, 2008.
