Just uploaded the mic recording of my new piece onto my website:

http://www.dewdrop-world.net/audio/farshore128.mp3

Enjoy!

Quote:
You are already on the far shore (2009)
For amplified violin and computer

As You are already on the far shore approached completion, I observed that it moves through the stages of my musical evolution: from the chromatic, difficult “new-music” idiom of my student days, through the beat-driven dance club music that occupied most of my graduate study, and on to the recent emergence of a serene attitude that grows out of several years’ meditation practice. The title reflects a paradox, universal in human experience: that nothing is there at the end of the journey that was not already present at the beginning. Reaching what some Buddhist writing calls “the far shore” is more a matter of recognizing that it’s already here; we’re simply too distracted to see it.

The instrumentation (violin and computer) relies on the development, in the last decade or two, of programming environments for live audio processing. The electronic parts are not prerecorded; instead, they are synthesized in real time during the performance on the computer, with no external audio processing. The computer also “composes” some of the notes, within certain constraints, as the piece progresses. Every performance will be slightly different. The software is written in SuperCollider, a special-purpose programming language for audio synthesis and algorithmic composition designed by James McCartney.

I am indebted to Eric Pritchard for his interest in this project, and for his always-alive musicality, which were a terrific inspiration during my graduate years at Duke. I owe my gratitude also to my composition teachers at Duke, who encouraged me as I stretched into novel musical territory, and to the worldwide community of developers of SuperCollider, without which this piece could not exist.

A beautiful and interesting piece. I only wish I could find a quieter environment to listen, where I could enjoy all the subtleties.
