About

Composed in collaboration with Adrian Barr.

This collaboration between sound designer and acoustic composer explores the aural and physical characteristics of Felix, the Siamese cat, whose voice (recorded with his permission) is the basis of the CD soundbed. Felix's meows and purrs, plus environmental sounds, have been transformed using a number of delay, reverb and pitch shifting effects to create a surreal feline sound world. The acoustic piano part works closely with the timing of the CD soundbed to produce a playful evocation of Felix and his world. The Cat's Meow was written for Italian pianist, Antonietta Loffredo, and her project, Childhood in Music.

The piece has been recorded by Antonietta and is released by Wirripang on a CD titled Childhood in Music.
