ICMC Computer-music festival in Banff, Canada.
Played “Tempest” (listen)
TEMPEST [6m13s] 1993
Drawn from the essence of drama in the play; the struggle of humans between the power of nature and the power of art. The listener finds themselves between the rolling of the ocean and the creaking of the boat close to breaking point; the power of nature playing with the helpless shipmates as the music plays with the passive listener. The piece is designed for an immersive multi-speaker installation that embeds listeners in the midst of the soundscape.
