Description

Composer's Note:

The season of spring 2020 introduced a new reality concerning music making and the audience experience, which didn’t change dramatically with summer. Consequently, I continued my experiments with performers and ensembles telematically, over the internet, and continued creating graphic scores to guide my experiments, many of which employed interactive electronics programmed in Kyma. The sonic network I normally would create with Kyma and performers would be in the same room, connecting electronic and acoustic sounds with microphones and speakers. In our new performance paradigm, the sonic network is distributed across communication networks intended for business meetings and conferences. Whereas the Spring 2020 scores focus on particular aspects of sound, in my Summer 2020 collection I began considering larger, traditional forms and in some cases, simply indicate the date of creation. What musical results are desired is left to the titles, while other aspects are open, such as instrumentation, timbre, tempo, and pitch.

Comments
