Megalopolis LP
2011-12-02

A. Campbell Payne: Producer

Many electronic musicians (myself included) look to the post-industrial world for inspiration. When I wrote this piece, I was interested in exploring the concepts of urban sprawl, the mobile internet, highways, and cloud computing. Each track is a different movement of the piece, and each title takes the name of an urban center of the American Northeast, followed by one digit for the center’s population ranking, one digit for the order in which the movement was written, one letter for the movement’s pitch class, and four digits for the movement’s tempo in beats per minute.

Megalopolis was written during a bus trip from New York, NY to Boston, MA on an overcast day (02011.10.13).

The only software used during the writing process was Oliver Wittchow’s nanoloop. The original .nan files for each movement can be found at: belgianman.com/campbell/megalopolis.zip To run these files, use nanoloop (available for Android and iOS), or the free nanoloop lite (iOS only).
