Coding Factory was written in response to Disquiet Junto Project 0324: Factory Floor.
Consider what sort of music is appropriate for collaborative workplaces, such as newsrooms, design studios, software development teams, and so forth. Think about music that (1) isn’t distracting and (2) suggests momentum.
A while back I wrote a 45 minute piece for myself to listen to while on the elliptical. The idea was to provide a specific rhythm throughout my workout on which to base my actions. As I worked my legs and arms the music eventually fell into the background, allowing me to think of other things.
I decided to use this general idea with Coding Factory, a considerably shorter piece, that would allow one to either listen to what is happening or let it slide into the background so that other thoughts could take over.
Coding Factory was written for nine solo instruments, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, two Violins, Viola, Cello, and String Bass.
