SJOF 15′ (2014), for kHz


SJOF was originally written for the kHz kollektiv, a group lead by Yannis Kyriakides which I have been a part of since 2013. It’s an improvisational piece in which the performers are using small homemade instruments I built to limit the pitch material. The piece is structurally organized by a light patch, made in Max/MSP by Darien Brito, that controls three light bulbs. The piece was also performed by another ad hoc group of musicians in Helsinki.
