Saffron Slides, Ivolin Mix Carey Nutman

This work was constructed like a slide show, i.e., a series of pictures which are not necessarily related. The central section is constructed entirely from violin sounds, which were chopped up and processed inside the computer. The other sections, which are arranged in an arc form, borrow musical material composed earlier using MIDI synthesizers, sometimes driven by proprietary sequencing software, but mostly by a unique program, (written by Geoff Nossiter), which allows real time generation of electronic music with real time interaction between computer and composer.

Many thanks to Ivor McGregor (violin)
