Don't Dream (2016)

This work is for voice and live electronics in four-channel surround sound, to be performed in complete darkness.  The electronics include samplers of the live voice which are rapidly replaced, and complex controllable delays.  The audience is asked to participate near the end and their sound is sampled and echoed as well.  At 9'45" you can hear their visceral 'Eh!'  Microphones can not capture the power and beauty of their harmony.  On stage hearing them was one of the most transcendent musical experiences of my life.
