Programme Note
Performance note:

Instruments need to be amplified for performance. There are two (optional) pre-recorded files that are played for parts of the work, as indicated in the score. When used, the recordings should not be played through speakers as ‘electronics’ but rather be a part of the instrumental texture, coming from an amplified instrumental source or a small device on stage. There are a few different options to play the files: the audio output (basic playing device, such as a mini player or even a phone) can be held near and played through the pickup of the guitar; a vibration speaker (such as Epishock or Rock-It 3.0 from OrigAudio) can be attached to a surface, such as a table, the bass drum or the gong, to turn the surface into a speaker where the audio from the playing device plays through; or played through a radio placed on stage. There may be other ways to play the recording – the desired outcome of the sound should feel as though coming from the overall texture of the instrumental performance. Anna Thorvaldsdottir
