Running time: 6' 47''
Simultaneous Opposites # 52: Tone Rose   
Production: 2011

Tone Rose is an example of serial composition applied to not only audio tones, but also cinematic shots. It was created using my Simultaneous Opposites engine: a program for traversing previously captured video footage in real time, navigating by use of a MIDI guitar, computer pointing device, and software algorithm. 

I like the way Tone Rose delicately sets up your expectation, then let’s you fill in the silences. This is how we learn empathy, and you can feel it happen as you experience the piece.
