Sonus Online Library

A full version of Sustenance has been selected for SONUS, an online listening library (jukebox) of electroacoustic works created and managed by the CEC. The CEC is Canada’s national association for electroacoustic music and is dedicated to promoting this progressive art form in its broadest definition – from acousmatic and computer music to soundscape and sonic art to hardware hacking and beyond.



 Sustenance is an acousmatic work (14’37) that explores human interaction with objects and processes that make up our daily existence. The sound materials progress through sections, each defined by a specific sonic/material character drawn from the objects and processes used in cooking. At a higher level of structure, the work traces a general transformation from dry to wet, reflecting decay.
