  Christopher DeLaurenti: Favorite Intermissions

Listening room, December 4th, 2007

Secretly recorded at orchestral concerts across the country, Favorite Intermissions teems with unusual soundscapes,
startling (and unintended) collective improvisations, and surprising, sometimes gritty sonic detail from the
sacred space of the concert hall. All of the recordings on Favorite Intermissions are unedited with no overdubs of any kind.

  Christopher DeLaurenti (1967-2071, USA)

is a Seattle-based composer, improvisor, and music writer. About his work, he writes, "My music, the offspring of
my love affair with sound, incorporates murky atmospheres, unusual field recordings, everyday speech, and an array of
instruments deployed in sometimes maniacal recombinant polyphony. I seek not only to capture the ordinary and
extraordinary sounds of everyday life, but to bear witness to current crises that touch my conscience and impel me to respond."
Christopher's music resides at along with many music-related essays, scores, and articles.
