Traces, 1995

Commissioned by: Jean-Guy Boisvert, with the assistance of the Canada Council

Premiered by: Jean-Guy Boisvert, clarinet, ISEA 95, Montréal, September 21, 1995


Traces is the third in a series of compositions for soloist and interactive electronics. The electronic requirements of these pieces are kept to a minimum: a Macintosh computer, a pitch-to-midi converter, and a single commercial synthesizer (in this case a Proteus-1). Software, written using the Max programming language, responds to the live performance, and controls all aspects of the electroacoustic sounds that are produced by the synthesizer. The piece explores the relation between melody and harmony by granularizing and rapidly repeating the melodic material presented by the clarinet.”



Premiere Information:
September 21, 1995, Place des Arts, Montreal; Jean-Guy Boisvert.
