All the States Between
All the States Between is an electro-acoustic work constructed through the U.S. Mail, using (and working within the limitations of) two low-tech four-track cassette recorders. Ernesto Diaz-Infante laid down his tracks in San Francisco in late 2001 on recycled tapes, using a Tascam Portastudio 424, turntable, Shure SM57 mic on TV screen and broken CD player, San Francisco MUNI/BART field recordings, Sony TCM-313 cassette-corder, jack plug, violin, and voice. Matt Hannafin added his two tracks in New York in February 2002 using a Yamaha MT120, Samson R11 mics, percussion kit, hand cymbals, stainless steel handbells, qaraqeb, Ghanaian windmill bells, iron ankle bells, newspaper, bentwood tambourine, and miscellaneous rattles and shakers. The work is constructed in two parts, corresponding to the duration of the original tapes. Part I (tracks 1-7).......................46:39 Part II (tracks 8-11.....................30:44.
