The Carrier Band

The Carrier Band “Automatic Inscription of Speech Melody” CD The Carrier Band was formed in 1998 when Pauline Oliveros, Peer Bode and Andrew Deutsch performed three improvisations at Alfred. The title piece 'Automatic Inscription of Speech Melody' is a trio improvisation by Carrier Band based on quotes written in the technical notebooks (1934-1949) of pioneering electronic instrument developer Harald Bode.

The Carrier Band “Voice Coil” CD Voice Coil was performed by the Carrier Band in the fall of 2003 at the Deep Listening Space in Kingston, New York. Pauline Oliveros performed on accordion and computer based Expanded Instrument System, Peer Bode performed live text with his Bode Vocoder, and Andrew Deutsch performed live mixing, archival recordings from the Bode archive, samples, loops and electronics. Voice Coil is an example of an improvisation emphasizing the integration of analog systems and new digital tools between performers both living and deceased. In 2007 Andrew Deutsch added about 35 minutes of short overdubs to the recordings and has brought the recording closer to what the audience heard at the Deep Listening Space. Furthermore, the overdubs provide added depth to the work for repeated listening.
