"We (the undivided divinity that operates in us)
have dreamed the world. We have dreamed it resistant,
mysterious, visible, ubiquitous in space, and firm in time;
but we have allowed tenuous and eternal interstices of
irrationality in its architecture, to know that it is false."
Jorge Luis Borges, "Avatars of the Tortoise"
Interstices (Layer II) is a new version of my original string string quartet from 1997. A live electronics layer was composed for this new version and the original score was re-written to adapt the musical materials to this new layer. Several new signal processing tools were developed for this project, including real-time spectral peak detection and removal (ATS), and statistical spectral analysis and mapping.
