The second of the Eleven Clouds is a 5" CD-R released in a 6" x 8" mylar pocket with associated postcard. The system used for the generation of this piece was an iteration of the cloud used for I'm not completing any thoughts but if anything even more unstable. While I'm not completing any thoughts can be thought of as the documentation of an unexpected occurrence Skipping Stones is a fully realized instance of what I'm trying to get at with my experimental electronics. The whole piece works: it explores sounds that I find constantly captivating, it has a structure that flows, filled with variety yet allowing for the exploration and iteration of events. There are perhapse an instance or two of uncertainty (it is live electronics after all) but even those I think add to the fragile structure and beyond that there is a stretch in this piece that may be the best five minutes or so I've made to date.
