This work is derived from various paper, paper cutter, and fire sounds. Special thanks to the Freesound Project and David McIntire for providing most of the samples.
Almost Shiny was composed in the summer of 2008 and was a part of the 60×60 International Mix in 2009. The work’s extended counterpart, Shiny, was a finalist for VI Concurso Internacional de Miniaturas Electroacusticas that same year. The sound sources come from David McIntire’s wacky bag of magical noises. ]
