Program Notes

Hell's Hounds are Yorkies is the result of manipulating samples taken from my landlords pet Yorkie, Bella. When in protection mode, Bella barks her head off as if she is a serious threat....a force to be reckoned with. With this in mind, I imagined transforming her sonically into the large, tough dog she imagines herself to be.

Hell's Hounds was premiered near Ground Zero, in the Garden Atrium at New York's World Trade Center as part of Vox Novus' 60x60 International Mix 2009.
