A real-time generative work for vocals and electronics, spatialized for 8 speaker array, commissioned by the San Diego Art Institute, for (Con)Text, July 2015.
The Star Spangled Banner is sung in various languages. Algorithms are engaged to emphasize the evolving bodies that comprise statehood. Constituting States invites the listener to engage with the illusory and impermanence, conditions of every state, through its continuously modulating form. * Sample is mixed for stereo, yet the work is composed for an 8-channel array.
