Koti Jaddu's submission to the Young Composer Score call reads right out of a book of preludes
Zekai Liu's work Enigma is a racing whirlwind of rhythm and the A blues scale.
Firmly rooted in the American Mavericks tradition, this work fuses hymns with polytonality and misalignment, a la Charles Ives.
Scott Blasco's work "Queen of Heaven" is a devotional-type meditation for piano and electronics.
Reilly Spitzfaden's work Resonances is an interesting exploration of instrumental tone and gesture, a cat-and-mouse game of imitation.
Mitch Weakley's piece "Keys, Strings, Clothespins" investigates a C pentatonic scale with a flattened sixth step (Ab) through the lens of a prepared piano, and its consequent timbres.
Frustrated with the built-in sounds of Logic X and the direct-in from my amp into my interface, I needed better sound quality, more tones, and much more versatility. The Zoom G1Xon does not disappoint.
