sixspot burnet is a recording of the first live performance of decker and booth under the name grykes. sixspot burnet, named for the visually striking red spotted zygaena filipendulae moth, is an open structure composition featuring analog modular synthesis, raw and processed field recordings, electronics, pre-composed ambient textures, violin, and audio collage. the work has a fixed progression and form, and a closed set of materials, but is variable in the details of its live performance. this recording may be seen as a “snapshot” of the evolution of the piece as it is further developed.
