Piling Sand—Piling Stone 6 is for solo contrabass and MaxMSP and is part of a series of pieces that gradually reveal themselves to the listener over the space of 90 minutes. One by one, notes are played, which are recorded and looped back every six minutes through a multi-channel speaker installation. Ever so slowly, the piece becomes layered through the speaker playback: it becomes denser, richer, and more elaborate, until the final six minutes reveal the “complete” piece. Andrew Reed Miller commissioned Piling Sand—Piling Stone 6 with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts in 2014.
