Program Notes

Singularity (2014), a fifteen-minute work for wind ensemble and live electronic sound, hybridizes aspects of fixed media and live electroacoustic music. The electronic part is notated on staff paper and distributed alongside the instrumental parts, to be performed on a laptop computer by a musician within the ensemble. The electronic sound is conceived as a collection of triggered musical events whose timings are often flexible or directly controlled by the laptop player. This approach helps to overcome many of the inherent challenges of mixing electronic sounds with acoustic instruments and minimizes logistical obstacles.

Singularity was the sole recipient of the 2014 James E. Croft Grant for Young and Emerging Wind Band Composers, issued by the Atlantic Coast Conference Band Directors Association. The University of North Carolina Wind Ensemble premiered the work on November 23rd, 2015, under the direction of Evan Feldman.
