17C Foam Rubber and Fur
 Steve Batte » Location: Listening Room
"17C Foam Rubber and Fur" uses several compositional techniques "popularized" by Elliott Carter, such as
* Metric Modulation -- the gradual introduction of a new tempo that is a division of the existing tempo
* All-interval 12-tone rows -- a static octave placement of all 12 notes in such a way that all 11 possible intervals exist between them
* Differentiation of voices by assigning each voice a subset of the 11 possible intervals
I've been exploring the advantages and limitations of these techniques, and have found that audio/midi apps are a bit better able to suffer some of the performance difficulties involved (though I've never seen a musician experience a segmentation fault). In this particular piece, I've attempted to make the above techniques somewhat obvious, and the music more accessible than Mr. Carter's tend to be. But maybe I'm fooling myself.

The schedule is a major guideline. There is no guarantee events will take place at the announced timeslot.
