Spring 2012 Faculty Composers Recital @ Lee Chapel, Stetson University in DeLand, FL. Co-composed and performed with Hunter Lee.
These two pieces explore the musical potential of discarded, non-musical objects and are both created using a single item as the source of all sound objects heard in the works. Layers are built by two laptop performers each using a different method: one performer triggers pre-recorded samples using an interactive sequencer, while the second records simple loops from his live performance.
The works began as improvisations between the two performers that eventually settled into a mostly-scripted set of rhythmic variations. The results highlight the rhythmic and timbral variety that is possible using these two complimentary methods on a single item. These pieces were first developed for Mobile Performance Group and premiered as part of our performance at the Harold Golen Gallery in Miami during December 2011.
