Delayed to Rest
"Delayed to Rest" is a work for solo electric guitar and a computer running custom software written for this piece. As
the guitarist performs, the computer takes the live sound of the guitar, heard through the center speaker, delays its
output by a few beats, then plays it through the two side speakers. This produces and echoing effect. The performer
uses a footswitch to tell the computer how many beats to delay the sound, and to control other delay-based processes.
Every sound heard originates in real-time from what the guitarist performs live; nothing is prerecorded, sampled, or
synthesized. Additionally, nothing that the computer does is random; it uses specific delay times, rhythms, and signal
levels throughout the piece according to the score.
