Commissioned by the New Century improv! Ensemble at the University of Oklahoma. Completed March 2019, Norman, Oklahoma
This piece turns words into music by means of a simple synthesizer that I programmed in Max/MSP. As the computer player types the words, each letter triggers a sound; punctuation and spaces change the settings of the synthesizer. The instrumentalist improvises their part, interacting with the electronic sounds and expressing the chosen text as best they can.
