Forrest Marquisee is a student at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  Aptly enough, he majors in both music and environmental science.

Marquisee on “Waking up…”:

“‘Waking up in the Middle of the Night’ was created in Fall 2008. It was performed with a computer synthesizer and a violin. Both instruments were recorded live, at night.
The piece blurs genre lines in its attempts to inspire imagery with sound.
Specifically, it tries to illustrate the actions and feelings associated with being woken from bed, into a dark room.”

Morley on “Meet the Horsey…”:

“This piece was composed and processed using the Roland MC303 and the Roland SP-808, melding samples from The Valley of the Dolls and Multiple Maniacs.

“The piece needs no explanation. It is a very simple dance track. Just fun and interesting sounds arranged together. It was created in 1998.”
