Sharp Colin McGuire

Sharp is a stereo, acousmatic work that briefly explores a sound world inhabited by cutlery. Folding pocket-knives click, swords are unsheathed, and blades are run across a sharpening stone… all, of course, at various levels of surrogacy. While no blood was spilled in the composition of this piece, the other samples, synths, and instruments involved remain fearful of the temerity shown by the cold steel.
