Jon Hopkins – Meditation 1 - Singing Bowl (Ascension) (Single)
Jon Hopkins shares a new release, “Singing Bowl (Ascension)”, the first in a new series of ‘Meditations’. To create this piece, Hopkins recorded a range of vibrations created by a 100 year-old singing bowl found in an antique shop in Delhi. He then fed these into a laptop running a simple, generative system that triggered the hits and drones at random. This would allow synchronicity to play a central part in the composition process, and remove as much ‘thinking’ as possible from the writing. An earlier version of this generative piece was used as a sound installation at last year’s Helsinki Arts Festival.
