Afslørende for violin & interactive electronics
The piece is scored for violin and interactive electronics. The performer plays violin while simultaneously operating a foot pedal, which controls the mix of a patch created in Max/MSP/Jitter by way of Ableton Live. The patch has two main functions; amplification of the violin, and the synthesis of new harmony tones. The 3-section structure of the piece outlines a simple tune, develops and expands it, before the electronics take on a primary role and play the melody, with harmony from the performer.
