"Free" Improvised music
One of the great benefits and pleasures of my time at CNMAT was the opportunity to continue to play with a variety of guest free improvisers.
I define "free" in this case as scoreless and without any discussing prior on what we intend to play .
Here are some examples: Headphones please my friends:

The Arbitrariness of Language for solo piano

The Arbitrariness of Language for solo piano
(duration ca 8’00)

This piece is my second work to be based on a particular poem by the Medieval Japanese poet Izumi Shikibu. A phonetic rendering of this poem in the Roman alphabet reads:

kuraki yori
kuraki michi ni zo
irinu beki
haruka ni terase
yama no ha no tsuki

translating* roughly as;

Outside Music

vagues / fenêtres

This piece reflects my interest in the intersection between natural and musical structures, and the nuances revealed by close listening. It also, I think, bears traces of the many hours I spent wandering with camera and recording devices through the old town and along the promenade in Nice, absorbing color, shape, movement, reflection.

Submarine Installation - CCRMA

A contact mic amplifies drips from a sink. An old piece of piping strapped to the railing emits the sounds of voices. Operating the towel dispenser causes a flurry of water sounds from the metal box attached. This installation explores the experience of being underwater in a confined space, through memories, stories and sounds.

Project

Submarine / Short Films About Water

This multi-channel video and acoustic installation/immersive environment, created collaboratively by Evelyn Ficarra and Ian Winters, exists at an intersection between Ficarra's long standing obsession with the submarine world and several time-lapse films about water by Winters shot at noted sea-faring locations around the globe.
