objet sonore/objet cinétique

for stereo tape

objet sonore/objet cinétique (2007) is a composition that explores the kinesis/stasis continuum as it relates to sound objects and musical motion. This work exhibits a variety of possible temporal manifestations of sound, navigating the boundaries between motion and rest to create gestures of animation and repose that shape musical structure. I am most grateful to the Institut International de Musique Electroacoustique de Bourges (IMEB) for commissioning this composition and generously providing the utilization of their studios in Bourges, France for the production of this work. objet sonore/objet cinétique was recently awarded second prize in the CIMESP 2007 international computer music competition.
