11 Attempted Decompositions is the title of an album being made in collaboration with more than 50 collaborators.
An act of composition in reverse, an antidote to composer-as-landowner, a Decomposition is defined as a series of musical decisions rather than a predetermined melody or harmony. Each Decomposition is based around a different focal point: light, timbre, loudness, note, meaning, contact, conversation, periodicity, presence, and absence.
The system of decomposition has been developed through a Workspace Residency with Harvestworks, a Fellowship with IDEA New Rochelle, and a residency at Three Phase Center.
Initial recording sessions took place at Harvestworks in 2018, they can be heard at brianmccorkle.bandcamp.com
