Abstract / Description of output

Studies for physically modelled brass synthesis and Serge modular synthesiser.

In engineering the yield point is the point at which some fraction of deformation of a material as a result of applied stress and strain to the material is permanent.

This suite of studies explores deformation of pitch, amplitude, duration and timbral intonation in musical material by applying algorithmic and stochastic processes to physically modelled brass synthesis, with additional resonances and augmentations from similar processes applied to Serge modular synthesiser.

A series of trios is interspersed with solo sequences and articulations.

The work builds on prior explorations of the extended temporal character of note level events that have been “prolonged and intensified to unnatural and uneasy duration” in Interval and Instance, and the smeared, transient and unstable spectromorphology of interactive work w[i]nd.
