piano + stereo audio
seed. signal. is a mixed work for piano and precomposed electronic sound. The piece utilizes a relatively limited set of sound materials, yet attempts to project a sense of endless variation in their presentation. The work is characterized by a constant juxtaposition of pitch and noise, and jagged rhythmic/gestural tension followed by stasis, silence, repetition, or pulse. seed. signal. was written for pianist and composer Keith Kirchoff.
