Resound (Soundplay5) (2006) – version for alto saxophone and computer 5’ [performed by Jeremy Brown]
Soundplay is a series of works conceived as both musical / soundscape compositions and as sound games. The material consists of overlapping soundfiles, melodic and spoken fragments, solo and ensemble movements, and extensive live processing and sound spatialization. This material can be combined in different ways, similar to the way in which games have defined players and rules but the exact outcome and more importantly how the game develops is not known. There are five pieces in the series. The first, Soundplay1 for computer (2004), is an interactive soundscape work that surrounds the listeners with sounds in motion or ‘kinetic music’.
