Smoke and Mirrors

Most of my electroacoustic music involving live performers takes advantage of the potential for perceptual ambiguity between acoustic and electroacoustic domains. Each domain engages in a sort of cross-pollination with the other, where ideas from the acoustic world appear in the electronics and vice versa, resulting in an overall integrated gestalt. In Smoke and Mirrors, I took this approach again with the guiding concept of considering the ensemble and electronics as two components of an object or image capable of gradually coming into and out of focus.
