David Eagle

Traces, 1991

Commissioned by:

Traces is an interactive composition. My aim was to create a performance context that explores a wide range of levels of interaction between the performer and the computer/sampler by developing various roles for the computer. These are: Music Instrument, Interpreter, Improvising Musician, and Composer. (...) Within the piece, these four approaches are used interchangeably. The composition was realized in the University of Calgary Electroacoustic Music Studio on a Macintosh IIcx computer using MAX, and object-oriented graphic MIDI programming environment and SampleCell, an internal 16-bit sampler.

Traces was selected with Honourary Mention in the 1991 Prix Arts Electronica, Interactive Arts category.”

Premiere Information:
May 11, 1991, Music Gallery, Toronto; David Eagle, flute.
