EAST AFRICAN NOCTURNE is the first duo collaboration between Chris Watson and Z"EV. Their collaborative process utilized the posting of files on Z"EV"s ftp site and email discussion. The source materials for the composition were based on recordings of ambience, birds, elephants, frogs, hyenas, insects, lions and vultures captured by Watson during trips to the Serengeti National Park, Arusha, Tanzania; and recordings of Z"EV"s percussion instruments produced in the crypt of Christ Church in Spitalfields. On September 11 and 12 2010 the premiere performances will occur at the South London Gallery in Camberwell; in November of 2010 the piece will be released in CD format by Atavistic Worldwide. (((nocturne: excerpted from the wikipedia entry))) In "The Night"s Music" (1926), Bartók imitated the sounds of nature. It contains quiet, eerie, blurred cluster-chords and imitations of the twittering of birds and croaking of nocturnal creatures, with lonely melodies in contrasting sections.
