Last year I created a piece entitled Consequences of Leaving A Record which I described as “a 4 hour 24 minute 19 second long piece compiling synthesizer sequences created between 1995 and 2001 (though some were written as far back as 1992).”

I made Lesser Consequences by spontaneously crushing those 4 hours, 24 minutes and 19 seconds into a 10-minute audio file. I tried several other durations between 30 seconds and 40 minutes but found this one the most enjoyable. To my ears, this “piece” is noisy, ridiculous, and funny all at once. The first time I played it, my wife said, “If you tell me you composed that, I’m going to throw something at you.”
