Cosmos

 
Cosmos is an attempted realization of a number of important aesthetic concepts for me as a composer: the unification of the micro and macro dimensions of sound (wave motion being common to both); an assimilation of influence from non-Western musics; and the desire to produce music in harmony with nature. It is also the first composition conceived for and produced by my electronic music performance system, MIDI_Sculptor – a system that incorporates the Max Mathews Radio Baton as a musical controller in conjuntion with my own purpose-built software, plus a range of hardware devices.
 
Cosmos was my graduation submission for the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts from Stanford University. This recording is an excerpt from the live performance I gave at the university's annual outdoor computer music concert, Digital Music Under the Stars, on July 24, 1997.
