Correspondences for iPad/Percussion Ensemble

10.00

Correspondences is a study in gesture across iPad screens and small percussion instruments. Written for an ensemble of flexible size performing in unison, each player chooses a set of four small percussion instruments to contrast with a musical iPad app that is common to the whole ensemble.

This work introduces three touch-screen gestures for interacting with the iPads inspired by percussion: tap, swipe, and swirl. With one hand dedicated to the iPad screen and the other performing on the percussion instruments, this work asks performers to examine the commonalities of gesture that are possible between percussion and computer instruments.

Duration: 6'30"

Correspondences was composed for Ensemble Metatone, a group dedicated to exploring performance with percussion and iPads. The premiere took place in August 2014 at the Drill Hall Gallery, Canberra, Australia as part of their Colour Music exhibition.
