Doleo Æternus

2004 - 2009 | Evolving Compositional Model

A series of prototypical works built on a specific chord structure.

Doleo Æternus was begun in 2004 with the development of a piece then called Anger. The work consisted of a series of chords and a concept for a process whereby the live performance would be sampled and fed back to us incessantly creating a vibrating rhythmic drone.

The chords created for Anger would go on to form the framework for most of my work until the creation of Apparitions of The Four Pillars. This process of refining and investigating these chords proved incredibly valuable in the development of the holistic self-contained system I would go on to develop.
