"In Excess"
Robert McClure
United States
2017
Mexico Premiere
8 channels
in excess explores the vast amounts of waste humans produce on a daily basis. This general observation was magnified during my time living/working in China. Excessive packaging accompanied nearly all products in a vain attempt to elicit a feeling of luxury in the consumer. This plastic packaging served as the primary sound producing material. This work was written in conjunction with the oboe solo, "struggling". The two pieces can be performed simultaneously under the title, "struggling, in excess". Taking cues from the oboe solo, balloons were used to simulate multiphonics; an important sound character for "in excess".

"Ring, Resonate, Resound"
Leah Reid

Additional Performance
8 channels
Ring, Resonate, Resound is an acousmatic composition written in homage to John Chowning. The piece tips its hat to Chowning’s Stria, Turenas, and the beautiful sonic landscape Chowning explored through his research and discovery of FM synthesis. Ring, Resonate, Resound is dedicated to him.

The piece was composed using a multidimensional compositional timbre model Reid developed while at Stanford University. The composition explores timbre through dozens of bell sounds, which provide the harmonic and timbral material, structure, foreground, and background for the piece. The composition is comprised of five sections, each examining a different set of bells and materials that interact with them. The piece begins thin and bright, then gradually increases in spectral and textural density until the listener is enveloped by a thick sound mass of ringing bells. The bells gently fade into waves of rich harmonic resonances.
