More Info

"Staring At The Moon" is a collection of recent One Sound works for electric guitar, Kyma, and vibraphone with computer processing, composed between 2003 and 2005. Each piece was recorded in realtime without overdubs or edits.

"Staring At The Moon" includes "A Cloudless Sky" and "Dreamwood", which continue to explore the guitar techniques first used in Five Nocturnes and feature more advanced computer processing to further displace the guitar from its normal tonal world. "One Word" is my first composition using the Kyma System, a work in just intonation for the first 30 harmonics of a A Major chord. The closing track, "Staring At The Moon", is a recent reworking of a 1987 piece for vibraphone and Cycling 74's M, here using the sound of the bowed vibes exclusively in an interactive duet for performer and computer.
