Rhythmic study (2006)   for live computer

“…these particular simultaneous tempo relationships. Of course, people haven’t heard it. It hasn’t been done. It couldn’t be done before, and only in electronic music it can be.”

(Conlon Nancarrow)

This piece, inspired by Conlon Nancarrow’s studies for player piano, is a study of the possibilities which tempo, as an active component, offers for building different temporal relationships with two independent sequences of synthesized sounds. Stepped and varying tempos are used in this piece to shape a flexible musical experience with different levels of ‘temporal dissonance’
