ORGANEBULA (2019)

 

PERFORMANCE CREDIT - Ligeti Quartet

 
 
For string quartet, live electronics, and single-channel video, "Organebula" is a meditation on abstract relations of periodicity as they emerge in both the auditory and visual domains. It adapts as its point of departure an audiovisual span of magnetic tape that is looped and then subjected to various transformative effects. Ornamenting these tape loops are a collection of pitches derived concretely from the digital processing of various analog timbres and abstractly from a harmonic series built upon the drone note played by the cello. The other strings sound motives that are adapted from a work of 13th-century polyphony and processed live through imbricated echos.
