"Concentrated Sweetner and Aperture: Bechet's Syndrome" (2010)- (2014)

"Concentrated Sweetener and Aperture: 
Bechet's Syndrome" (2010)- (2014)
Bil Smith Composer

This work for six violins and controllers was inspired by a lecture I attended in Darmstadt in 2012 with Irvine Arditti in which he explained the historical and technical nuances of Cage's Freeman Etudes.
In this work, each violinist is equipped with an arsenal of controllers, most designed for the electric guitar. The performer can choose the controllers of preference prior to the performance, however, they are limited to a specific type of controller. They also have the right to choose no controller. The list is as follows:

Oberheim Voltage Controlled Filter/Maestro Filter Sample and Hold

Ampeg Scrambler
Klon Centaur overdrive pedal
CostaLab Custom Muff
Hartman 8va Octave Fuzz True-Bypass Tycobrahe Octavia/Octave Fuzz Pedal
Vahlbruch Effects / Octavia/ 2010
Pigtronix Keymaster
T-Rex Engineering PolySwitch AB
Xotic X Blender
Audible Disease Audio Signal Switcher ASS-1
Wounded Paw / Blender V4 / 2013

Roland Funny Cat
