Prismic Generations

for struck and bowed pitched instruments (2003/2005)
with computer sound and video
duration is 10′

Prismic Generations employs a spectral-rhythmic system of sound and light. The prismic effects of light on ice inspired a musical system linking rhythmic and spectral mutation. Each partial of a justly tuned overtone series is assigned its own temporal identity linked to its frequency evolution. As timbre changes, polyrhythm also changes. The spectral composition goes awry as the overtone series and corresponding rhythmic system is compressed and expanded. Poetics arises from the combination of recorded (video) and computer-generated (sound) media, and from the juxtaposition of fluid and mechanical time.
