stone north

flat guitar, custom electronics (2009)



Stone North is a piece for live electronics and tabletop guitar in which tones generated from the guitar are processed and delayed to build a shifting bed of sound that slowly evolves over time.  Close attention is paid to the texture and contours of these sounds, so that a distinct audio microworld is moved through in each section of the piece.  By using extended techniques on the guitar in combination with the sound processing, a personal and idiosyncratic sound palette is produced, one that encourages deep and detailed listening.
