guitar book 1

for electric guitar, transducer, and video

premiere: Jack Langdon, Dec. 2018

This work is a collection of short pieces which cover a wide variety of musical and visual materials. the performance setup involves several layers of sonic mediation: the first being the amplification of the audio signal from the video into an audio transducer and the second being the transmission of that signal through the pickups of an electric guitar and into an amplifier. through a diverse series of miniatures, this work attempts to explore various forms of live/digital interaction through a system of technological mediation.
