Programme Note:
This piece conveys the relationship between two elements of sound: noise and pitch. These two elements are emphasized as separate voices by assigning each to an instrument: noise to tape and pitch to violin. Throughout the piece, the exchange of these elements, and the transformation from one element to another can be heard. All computer-generated sounds are derived from the sounds of the violin used in this work. The violin sounds were manipulated and recorded for the music of the tape using sound editing programs such as CLM, Snd, and Pro Tools.
