Guitar Conduction #1: Taut Steel

for electric guitar, effects and fixed media

Guitar Conduction #1: Taut Steel was commissioned by Stefan Östersjö. The composition is a structured improvisation that explores a variety of contemporary electric guitar techniques within an acousmatic context. The score is intended to provide a rough framework within which the guitarist improvises in response to the fixed media. The work constitutes an acknowledgement of the influential role rock music played during the formative years of my musical training.
