CPU (Opera)

CPU (A post-apocalyptic electronic opera for the end of the world, in one act.)


‘Imagine the prison of repetition
A pitch-perfect perpetual misery
Awaiting each player ignition
Is a blanket of unusable memory’

The Black Brave Ocean (SUITE)

Based on 21 chords, the Black Brave Ocean evolved into 5 installations – individual compositions that are, ostensibly, bad copies of bad copies, creating structural and tonal variations that eventually collapse into a series of theatrical games and concluding with no performers at all through audio playback.

Divisions of Progress (2009)

for piano, computer and any five instruments.

Each player provides an audio track to be randomly sliced and redistributed throughout the audience. As the piano soloist triggers new sections, each performer plays a series of game mobiles that evolve in complexity throughout the piece. Written for the 2009 Bang on a Can Festival. Richard Valitutto, piano soloist.
