still|arriving (2017)
for piano and electronics
Score published on Y-E-S: Release #2

still|arriving is a performance installation for one pianist and electronics. Its open notation invites the performers to make — speaking with Donna Haraway — string figures with the compositional idea, the software framework and the context of the live performance. The heart of the piano part is a simple live-electronic circuit: four delay lines à five seconds turn musical scales of different speed, range and direction into slowly changing chords — into the chamber-musical simultaneity of different pasts.

The video is from a performance at an event called "Pacific Bodies" at Flutgraben e.V. in June 2016 in collaboration with artist Claudia Doderer.
