Transect

99% pure synthesis, Transect is another study to create "chamber music" using the current technology. Ingredients of lines, articulations and phrasing were created by playing the synthesizer with a synthetic player whose bow arm loosely mimics the physics of the real thing. A bowed string and a throat were combined for the instrument. A year in the mountains of Alberta and California, and the mid-life interests of the composer figure into the story line, which is like the title, a section traversing.
