Friction Sounds

Composer: Tjarbe Björkson

Friction Sounds is based on the idea of the friction of vibrations, of frequencies that are close together. At the beginning, the listener is immersed in a kind of meditative state, created by a structure consisting only of air tones. Gradually the texture builds up and the first clear sounds and tones are introduced. Bit by bit, structures are formed; the music intensifies vastly until it culminates into a fast repetitive climax, in which all the energy ultimately masses together in a big, loud unison ending.
