This is the latest 'single' installment from a soon to be announced 13 hour installation entitled 'One Boy's Day'. While music will be edited and refined during this 2-3 year process, I thought it might be interesting to take advantage of new digital distribution methods and offer a glimpse into the creation process.
'Mayan Yours' uses hand claps recorded at the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Mexico. The handclaps record precise 7 beat delays embedded into the original architecture of the building structures. This acoustic phenomenon was only recently discovered by NASA scientists years after the ruins were rebuilt.
The B Side 'I Dry Gin' celebrates the pleasures and perils of drink and is dedicated to Andrew Rose Gregory.
More singles will become available through 2013-15. This single is available in 96kHz/24 Bit resolution.
