This was an improvisation that
and I did at the CalArts
CEAIT Festival in 2000. Larry
was tweaking the settings on his Killing Time software, and I was improvising with my
fergie software, which I controlled via two flashlights
taped to my head. It was a classy gig!
"Killing Time was an experiment in two things, harmonic series related tuning software, and the
notion of a fixed time-span that gradually gets sub-divided and "filled in" in a variety of ways
(similar, in principle, to my piece called Ensembles of Note). The Java/Jsyn software for Killing
Time allows for some improvisation using these ideas (including structural detunings of the
harmonic series, some "rhythmicana" type notions, and some other things)."
