This piece for piano, string quartet, theremin, and electronics is based on the idea of points coming together and was inspired by this geometric image. The motive behind the piece is a long slide, or glissando, that is performed by the violins, viola and theremin. The repeating 3 chord structure creates the shape of a triangle as the piece ascends in register. This is the one piece on the album that includes electronic processing, a spectral granular synth that uses a filter in the shape of . . . a triangle!
In this behind the scenes look, I introduce an electronic instrument called the theremin, show a live performance of the piece, and let you follow along in a score video. I hope you enjoy the piece!
