MICROCOSMICON (2015)

 
 
/* notae technico-hyleticae */
for keyboard and tape, “microcosmicon” presents a cantus firmus adapted from an étude from bartok’s _mikrokosmos_. the keyboard part arises from the placement of this cantus firmus in counterpoint with permutational transformations of itself in duple and quadruple augmentation. this structure is ornamented by wow-and-flutter-infused samples adapted from a cassette tape narrative about extraterrestrial adventure.
