Lars Bröndum - Chain of Events WW

Duration: 9'

The form of the piece is made out of seven events. The pianist initiates the events and the electronics responds accordingly. Some events are repeated and the electronics also has a cadenza half ways into the piece. The piano score is written to make use of the sounds inside and outside the piano. This involves scratching, bowing strings, closing lid etc. The "piano events" are also manipulated in Bröndum's Max/MSP patch "Trap". The electronic part is notated graphically and makes use of quartertones, clusters, feedback and noisy textures. The setup consists of a Theremin, a loop pedal, effects and a laptop. In this concert the piano part is pre-recorded and the piano events are triggered via a SP-404 sampler.
