Jan 01, 1990
Created by Diana Meckley
A work for brass, voice, and computer. It explores ideas of perspective and the meaning we attribute to sound based on its proximity or simplicity. Brass Map makes use of samples of musical material, folding those multiple wave forms via computer to create complex notes and then using those notes to play other sections of the work. Several other levels of structure are added to the work to make specific use of the radio medium and to create a different kind of narrative structure. Commission of New American Radio.
