for trombone and computer - (2001)

Program Notes:

Haiku is based upon the 5:7:5 proportions of the poetry form. These proportions permeate the piece's temporal and pitch worlds. The trombone is subjected to real time signal processing and accompanies a sound track based upon solar activity data collected by the Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI), mounted on the SOHO spacecraft, circling the Sun 1,000,000 miles from Earth. The data is used with the kind permission of Alexander Kosovich, Research Scientist, Stanford University. The audio undulations reflect solar flare activity which seems to naturally express the proportions of haiku.
