Moments of Inertia


The score for this piece consists of a series of twelve short works for violin and electronics written using algorithmic techniques derived from different mathematical equations in which moments of inertia play a role. Written with the unique talents and musical voice of Todd Reynolds in mind, the piece makes extensive use of delays and looping, with the electronic textures drawn hermetically from the sound of the violin during the performance. The video accompaniment consists of a series of high-speed video clips shot at three hundred frames per second, shuttled and manipulated by the musical gestures of the violinist.
