Interpretations of "Composition 1960 #7"
2015 - present
La Monte Young's "Composition 1960 #7" is a piece I have revisited multiple times.
The first incarnation, seen in the video below, was arranged for two candles and presented at the Electronic Chamber Music concert at the University of Michigan in Spring 2015. The height, movement, and size of the candle flames directly control subtle tuning and filter adjustments via video analysis.
Subsequent interpretations have included a version for multi-channel virtual string models, presented at Cinema for the Ears in Spring 2017 at LSU, and an implementation in the software project Packet Weeds.
