Turning (2014)

Program Notes

Composed in 2014, Turning is a work for drum set and electronics that explores the interaction between live performer and fixed electronic media. Throughout the work, the performer uses various implements such as sticks, brushes, and bows to elicit textures that blend and contrast against the electronic soundscape. The electronic component consists of recorded drum set samples that are manipulated in various ways, as well as synthesizers designed in Logic Pro X. Electronics are played back and triggered throughout the work through Pure Data.
