Death is Progressive is an elusive confusion between apathy and anger. It seeks to comment upon the idea of change as juxtaposed with the monotonous experience of a complacent subdued compliance. Composed as an electro-acoustic composition employing eight large loud speakers and one subwoofer, Death is Progressive studies the relations that exist between acoustic sound, recording, and the editing of such recording. The sounds that define the composition are obtained from three distinct sources: acoustic sound, analog electronic sound, and synthesized digital sound. Sounds from these three sources are recorded and subsequently contorted and mangled into an agreeable shape. Death is Progressive is a spiteful harangue upon the episodes of consciousness.
