This coming Saturday, June 29th, will see the premiere of the first collaborative composition between Anne Guthrie and myself (only took 10 years for us to do this kind of thing). titled “Remarks on Color,” it’s an indeterminate-ish piece for mixed and mobile ensemble, with occasional playback from discreet speakers in the space.

Bandwidth is about compositions that start from a single parameter or principle, extrapolating an entire piece from this one point. It is like looking through a paper towel tube, focusing on a small circle in the distance, until the outline of the tube becomes the viewer’s world. These pieces begin with a mechanism—a simple numerical series, the resonance of a room, or the shape of a singer’s mouth—and build into something more. They ask the listener to focus on a small space, and to find what is audible within it.
