Anxiety CD (2007)
Rare Works For Harpsichord Composer/multi-instrumentalist Damon Waitkus lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. His recordings incorporate traditionally-notated passages for acoustic instruments with sounds from the urban, natural, and domestic environments to create aural spaces which are intricate and intimate one moment, vast and enveloping the next.
Equal parts chamber music, tape collage and kitchen sink rock, this is intuitive, experience- rather than idea-driven music which evokes anxiety, through the narrative arrangement of mellifluous and abrasive sounds, in an effort to better understand it.
In addition to writing and recording sound collage and chamber pieces, Damon Waitkus plays "rock chamber music" with the quartet Oogog.
