Concerto Grosso (2011)

Concerto Grosso for Shofar, Conch, and Laptop Orchestra (2011)

The Concerto Grosso was composed using a polyphonic sampling instrument developed by the Laptop Orchestra of Louisiana called GUA. This instrument is able to process 6 separate sample streams, with control over playback, filtering, pitch and temporal displacement.  Composed as a structured improvisation, it was conceived as a modern interpretation of the concerto grosso form, where soloists and ensemble interact in dialog and collaboration.  All of the sounds in the piece are generated by the acoustic performers and transformed by the laptop performers.
