There’s an architecture to music. The structure of the composition – instruments & hooks, loops & licks. These are the materials & building blocks that define density & space, edges & transitions. And there’s a more explicit space-making that occurs in music production: positioning the instruments as if on a stage, building sonic spaces with reverb & delay, constructing distant surfaces to catch & reflect the sounds – a virtual room in which to place elements near & far. Space both encloses and releases sound. And the movement of sound reveals the composition of the space.
