Announcing ELECTRIC MUSIC CD Capstone CPS 8743 Release

Landmine (2001) for e-cello and computer by Anna Rubin is a work exploring the landmine crisis, especially as it affects Cambodia. The text has been drawn from various sources including demining observer David Levi Strauss, whose recorded voice is heard in the work. Material from the Human Rights Watch Report on Landmines and demining organizations is heard as well. The performer triggers digital audio tracks of text and sound with a MIDI pedal for each section of the piece. This allows the cellist to be at times a chamber musician engulfed in the texture, and at other times emerging as a soloist with virtuoso, cadenza-like material. A pitch-tracking device makes it possible for the cellist to randomly trigger digital audio files from the fingerboard of the instrument making each performance unique. The pitch tracker converts the analog signal of the e-cello into digital information the computer can recognize. E-cello patches that transform the sound are created on a MEP unit and a Harmonizer from precise instructions in the score. This is truly a computer interactive work, sometimes poignant, other times riveting.
