Artist Statement:


    Traces is the third in a series of compositions for soloist and interactive electronics. The electronic requirements of these pieces are kept to a minimum. A Macintosh computer, a pitch-to-MIDI converter and a single commercial synthesizer. Software, written using the Max programming language, responds to the live performance, and controls all aspects of the electroacoustic sounds that are produced by the synthesizer. The piece explores the relation between melody and harmony by granulizing and rapidly repeating the melodic material presented by the clarinet.

    Traces was commissioned by Jean-Guy Boisvert with the assistance of the Canada Council.
