Eric Miller's Sinter consists of six five-minute pieces bound together by digital proximity, conceptual conceit and overarching process. Each of the discrete elements of this suite of pieces has been composed using the same software (a program created within MAX/MSP) which imposes the same structure upon the source material fed through it – only the source material changes after every five minutes. A beautifully sparse series of trance-inducing rhythms is the result, with some source material pulsing like a Steve Reich composition pressed through a burlap sack, while other pieces sparkle like distant star clusters.
