Sammanfattning (abstract):
Circle Suite (Circle Squared, Circle Keys, Circle Self) (2011-2014) Circle Suite is a work in three movements for Disklavier player piano, controlled by the composer in three different ways. It is the result of an experiment into how to gesturally control an unstable generative system. The underlying agent-based system of four musicians is the same in all three movements. First, the feedback parameters are controlled through a set of pressure sensors using a novel vector-based mapping, with the controller placed on top of the piano. Second, the parameters are mapped from the pianist’s interactions on the very same piano that performs the output of the system. Finally, the system is left autonomously playing on itself through the very same mapping, seeded by pianist. The three movements follow each other without a break. This progression from an intimately controlled instrument to a set of co-musicians to an autonomous machine also raises questions about the relationship between the musician and his instrument, and about generative and performative aspects of music. The individual movements have been previously performed, but this is the World Premiere for the whole suite.
