Dust (2017)

for violin, alto saxophone, electric guitar,
percussion, piano and live electronics


Technical Requirements

Dust is a work for chamber ensemble and live computer music. The computer music part requires a Max "patch" (program), available from the composer. (See contact info here.)

The Max patch will run on a Macintosh or Windows computer. The preferrable audio output configuration is 8 channels, so a multi-channel audio interface is required (MOTU or RME recommended). The piece can be done in quad or stereo, however — a preset on the Max patch will reconfigure the channel output to suit the available speaker system.

In addition to the computer, a MIDI fader box (Korg nanoKontrol or similar) is required at the mix position. This is used by the computer operator during performance to adjust parameters (see Max patch for details).
