cut it out

cut it out for piano and electronics, 9 minutes, 2014

This piece started with recordings of works for piano which were processed electronically to highlight particular aspects of their sound. These were cut together to create a fixed electronic part which is mixed with the live piano in performance. The live piano part is derived from the scores of the original works with repetition, deviation and extended sustains. Piano and electronics combine to present a shifting and fragmentary whole which inhabits multiple acoustic spaces.

Premiered by Mark Knoop at City University on the 12th June 2014.
