Transients and Resonance Adam Basanta

I have long wanted to compose a piece using instrumental extended technique, which is then further extended into the electroacoustic realm; in this composition, prepared guitar is used as the source material. Within the electroacoustic compositional realm, I used several spectro-morphological archetypes, classifying them using the amount of “energy” they contained, and using the idea of “energy transfer” between the archetypes as an organizing principle. In my mind, this organization resulted in a relationship between Resonances (slow, evolving, energy building gestures), Transients (hard attacks and struck sounds, exuding energy), as well as the resulting Particles (remnants of Transient collisions), leading to the sound events’ perception as a cohesive, though state-changing, material entity.
