A meditative improvisation for electronics and voice.
This piece is a minimal contemplation of soft impulses. Electronics are controlled with the Leap Motion. A max patch uses finger and hand locations as amplitude control for sixteen sine waves. The sine wave oscillators are abstracted as a 4x4 grid in physical space above the leap motion. As the electronicist slowly moves their hand through space, pure tones slowly wax and wane. The vocalists subtly reinforce prominent tones and sustain them for the length of one breath. As a sine tone fades and the voice remains, a sonic transformation takes place.
