Afterimage 4 upcoming performance

My composition for piano and interactive computer processing (MaxMSP), Afterimage 4, will be performed Monday, December 5, 2016 at Virginia Tech University.The performance will feature pianist Tomoko Deguchi. Afterimage 4 was the first piece I composed after finishing my Ph.D. at the University at Buffalo in 2001. After several performances I withdrew the work. While I was happy with the slowly evolving piano part, I was never quite satisfied with the computer processing. After many years the opportunity finally appeared to revisit the computer processing of Afterimage 4. This revised version features DSP techniques I have developed in the intervening years since the premier of Afterimage 4. This latest and final version of Afterimage 4 features my approach to process and harmony from 2001 combined with my most recent approaches to real time DSP processing using MaxMSP.
