Exploring new forms of composition, Pigford's "Train Tracked" consists of an extended shot of a local trainyard, which is analysed by custom software to create a rhythm. Pylons and powerpoles become notes, triggering drum patterns as they pan across the lens. Sophisticated code executed very organically, the piece 'sonifies' the industrial architecture of daily life - making us aware of it's rhythms, as well as inspiring new forms of sound creation.
