fuse IV for five performers (2020)
Written for the Ball State University Electroacoustic Ensemble, fuse IV is fourth in a series of controlled aleatory compositions that explore the idea of fusing different timbral materials into one entity. The performers are given register-specific pitch sequences in a timed improvisation. They are also given the freedom to choose the high and low instruments, while amplification or live electronics can be added as an augmentation as well. Each performing quintet will eventually find their own way to “fuse” the materials.
