Soundplay2 for violin and computer (2005) further integrates aspects of aleatory and play within a musical structure. Through live processing on the computer, the violinist creates and transforms the surrounding electroacoustic soundscape. The violin line is processed in various ways (delays, filters, transposition, harmonization, rhythmic processes, recording and loops) and its gestures trigger the different soundfiles, with each performance having a unique outcome. The composer is at the computer and participates in the performance by shaping the response of the program to the live input.
