whatWALL?

whatWALL? (2003)

For alto saxophone and quadraphonic tape
Written for and dedicated to Brian Sacawa.

Project

Mathematica

Mathematica, for solo flute(s) and quadriphonic tape is the first from a set of four pieces entitled Quadrivium. The four pieces in Quadrivium are designed to be played either individually or together as a complete uninterrupted cycle. All the pieces are committed in one way or another to exploring the spatialization of sound.

Project

Tentations

Tentations—its title derived from the mechanical engineering term meaning “a method of making mechanical adjustment by a succession of trials”—came to fruition through exactly such experimental means. The composition, indeed is a posteriori, a musical hindsight born from intense collaboration between cellist and composer.

Project

Post-Industrial Organisms

Post-Industrial Organisms is an installation that reconstructs sonic landscapes with sound sculptures created from industrial waste. These organisms are constructed with motorized brushes rubbing against metallic bodies. The minute sound of the friction scrapping against each other is amplified through the carefully bending of their bodily shape.

"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:

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

translating* roughly as;
