Morphic Resonances is the third Meta/MOD Technologies co-release of Adam Rudolph’s music and the 23rd as a leader featuring his compositions. It is also the final installment of Rudolph’s trilogy of CDs following on the heels of 2 other Meta/MOD Technologies co-releases: “The Epic Botanical Beat Suite” (2015) by his electro-world percussion ensemble Hu: Vibrational and “Glare of the Tiger” (2017) by his Moving Pictures Octet.
The three releases sound very different from one another and Rudolph explains the trilogy connection this way: “I drew upon the same intervallic and rhythmic materials in creating the music for all three recordings. Using these materials as kind of musical DNA allowed me to create this trilogy of CD releases. Each sounds so different from the other because I used a different process to create the music on each. I feel that when we generate our own creative processes, then the music is bound to sound prototypical. It is what I call “organic music” whereby the spirit and the feeling can project through the music unencumbered by styles of the past. It sounds like itself.”
Morphic Resonances also reveals a new side of Rudolph’s musical journey by putting the spotlight on his through-composed music. Some of the pieces were commissioned by the ensembles on this release, while others were written when Rudolph was living in Copenhagen as a recipient of the prestigious D.I.V.A. award from the Danish government. “I tried to project my inner voice and spirit as well as my experiences as a hand drummer and improviser into the compositions. Being an autodidact, it was interesting to use the “Western classical” notational system to do that. I was fortunate to have outstanding musicians from both the USA and Europe to bring this music to life.”
