Redial (2006-07)

Compensating-system tuba

Redial is the penultimate piece of the solo album States of Rushing. The rotating-valve technique is now used to trap both air and water within the valve casing, creating noises strongly reminiscent of electronic processing. The title is a reference to the earlier piece Dial, the opening track of the solo CD Valve Division.
