Thanks to Séverine Ballon for this intense performance at CCRMA last week – and for asking me to write the piece in the first place! A new one for cello, live electronics, and light/video. Use headphones, set to full screen, and pull up a comfy chair – it’s almost 17 mins long – for the cheerfully titled “Not Even The Dead Go Free”. I will have a proper binaural mix early in the new year.
Also, people are still walking into the room after intermission as the piece starts… hence some of the noise at the beginning of the video, it’s not just people running away…
Lots more music and sound objects to follow in early 2018
I showed an early version of this installation at CCRMA Open House (Stanford University) in April 2016. This is an updated version shown during Ensemble Pamplemousse’s recent 2017 Chance and Circumstance Festival in New York. The installation uses MAX, Arduino, Photoresistor… and cookies
With thanks to Bryan Day’s San Francisco/Bay Area based Eh? Records Aural Repository comes my relatively recently released album of solo recordings. These performances use various degrees of SuperCollider controlled bandpass filtered feedback, violin bows and strings, a good old SM 57, and some electric guitar. They can all be checked out in the following ways –
