Still Life (Trumpet and live electronics)

Written for Stephen Altoft and his microtonal trumpet. The Electronic component includes both pre-composed 'tape' tracks and live responses. Using pd, the computer analyzes the trumpet input and tries to identify simple types of patterns: long notes, rapid passages, and steady pulses. The computer than generates an appropriate response based on the trumpet notes. Inhabiting this world is the trumpet whose fragmented sound gradually transform into a slow melody. Both melody and fragmented calls become submerged into the electronic sound towards the end of the piece.
