rearward front cover

rearward through forgottenness is the debut solo effort from A.F. Jones, a compendium/continuum of compositions and experimental improvisations from 2009 to 2013. An undersea acoustician, Jones’ music emphasizes structural components such as timbre, tone, or attack before form. Exploiting the elements and phenomena related to the physics of sound, he surveys the immediacy of emotional stimuli that can result from choices determined in situ, in performance and in recordings. In doing so, Jones’ work also explores the creation of chance psychoacoustic episodes for the listener/observer.
