Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Song improvised by Elisabeth Blair (http://www.elisabethblair.net) and live sampling by Jeff Morris (http://morrismusic.org), accompanied by improvised typing and video processing by Jeff Morris. Live audio sampling transforms the poetry into a conversation. The video intensifies our immersion in the words, rapidly forming and testing tenuous connections among ideas as they come, as might happen in your own mind while absorbing a new poem. The text was inspired by Elisabeth's friendship with an extraordinary woman who, sadly, passed away soon after creating this work.

  • Technical specs: 

    Octophonic (or stereophonic) audio with optional video. I will re-mix for your speaker configuration when I receive the specifications.
