Nat Evans is a Seattle-based composer and a sound-artist which works with field recordings. One year after Flyover Country, he released a new album. Two Functions in Three Dimensions: music for meditative cooking is out now and features Los Angeles-based composer Scott Worthington (electric bass). Full streaming is available below.
The music is a mathematical representation of intersecting fields, as is the title and cover image. In cooking, the field of the kitchen intersects and interacts with the literal field where food is grown. That is, mathematically, the overlapping of two (or more) functions in three dimensions. So to, in the music, the planes of the gong and bass intersect via the subwoofer resonating the gong. Simultaneously, in the kitchen Evans manifested the intersecting fields by preparing food including ingredients he grew himself in the garden, its own performative action.
