The inspiration for Right Error comes from a story about Late Great Thelonious Monk. After a solo performance, Monk looked very upset. Asked why, his answer was: “I played only WRONG errors!”. This means that right errors are possible…

The right error was made by a Schoeps CMC6 MK4 microphone during a recording session. Listening to the recording, at the very beginning a noise appeared, though no sound was yet played. It was the very first time for me, and it was the very first time for the sound engineer.

The 2”.042 error was stretched to 41’29”, and the waveform was normalized to -0.2 db. Back to Monk, by typing the lyrics of ‘Round Midnight (probably the best known of his all-masterpieces compositions catalogue) in binary language, a second of silence was introduced in the waveform in corrispondence of 0. Grouping sound and silence seconds 3+3+2 and putting the groups at the same start led to a non-linear sequence of sound and silence events. By typing the lyrics of ‘Round Midnight in octal ASCII language, the sound and silence events groups were assigned to one of the eight loudspeakers.

Right Error is composed for an eight loudspeakers sound system. The quadraphonic, stereo and binaural versions are here presented. Tracks were put in order to have a more comfortable listening. Silence is integral part of the composition.
