E:Tip

E:Tip

Encore grant recipient from the American Composers Forum, featuring Madeliene Shapiro with video by Caitlin Horsmon.

E: Tip is one of series that explores a template of compositional ideas with each version exploring an opposing angle of a lunar eclipse. General formal and thematic material include: the trajectory of an eclipse visually through time, the harmonic series, and consonance and dissonance fading in and out between very “real” and “unreal” sounds.  E: Tip specifically uses extended technique for cello in combination with manipulated recordings of bull-frogs.

Duration: 9 minutes

Featuring cellist, Alvin Wong.

With video by Caitlin Horsmon and cellist, Madeliene Shapiro
