Contemplation of all the different things that music can encompass sent me down a rabbit hole of re-familiarization with music for performed instrument and electronics. After spending a copious amount of time on YouTube listening to various works for harp and electronics, I remembered that as a senior at Vassar College, in my absolutely FANTASTIC electronic music course, I too participated in this compositional style. As a whole, I think my composition holds up remarkably well, and I am happy to bring it back into Internet circulation.
I’m inspired to move forward and continue to explore interactive writing. I’ve been looking for some good theory texts to keep by my side for reference in the coming years (I’d appreciate suggestions) and hope to create many more works like this in the future! My harp may well be one of my most inspiring sound design tools.
What is music to you?
