    Project Overview

    Delusion is a piece that I have been working on since the beginning of the year 2015. The piece was initially designed for double bass and electronics, which I specify for it to use Chuck audio programming language to perform. In Delusion, electronics sets up the piece's atmosphere and it also took a crucial role of presenting 3 most important tone rows in the beginnig. For double bass, I allowed it to have the freedom to improvise. Since I was free of any constraints from any third party, I composed this piece for enjoyment. Delusion was premiered during the MUSIC 220C Research Seminar in Computer-Generated Music class presentation on June 9, 2015.

    Here is a link to a brief analysis of Delusion.
