my three bodies on the shore
composition for 4 electric guitars, electric bass, and electronics
4-channel composition made using data from the fluctuating tides at three separate beaches- (Montauk, NY , Hudson, NY , and San Francisco, CA)- the performers follow a score that directs the changing of their tuning in line with the tidal data.
The electronic element consists of Max/MSP programming that uses that same tidal data to spatialize and delay the performers' sounds.
