It all adds​-​up

from by David Cooper Orton



A piece to commemorate the centenary of the birth of my father, Harold, born 13 November 1913.
Constructed around permutations of time signatures relating to 13-11-13, it also samples the sound of the brass band in which my father played.
Amongst his many accomplishments, Harold was an accountant. The melodic aspects of the piece use various ascending phrases with differing time intervals, producing an effect of gradually interlocking and overlapping/looping harmonies and melodies.


from Too bella belles, track released November 13, 2013
dco: guitars, loops, post-production effects, sampling, composition
