acoustic sourings


Program notes

In this piece are a set of “speaker drums;” a construction of speaker cones and their battery circuits attached to clips and/or metal sticks so that when these objects touch, as notated, they momentarily activate the speaker cones resulting in the pops, cracks, and static heard. These colors are further enhanced by filtering through various objects placed on the speakers themselves. The pianists also participate by placing these connectors on the low piano strings. The connections are disrupted and activated by the vibrations of the strings themselves.


At the center of this work is the idea of disintegration, connection between mechanics and performer, acoustic sourings, and precarious edges.

Commissioned and premiered by Yarn/Wire as part of their Currents Series. More info can be found here
