Fractus V: Metal Detector

Fractus V: Metal Detector, for percussion and SuperCollider, was commissioned by Adam Groh in 2013 and is fifth in an ongoing series of interactive duets for solo performer and interactive electronic sound. Both the human performer and the computer improvise unique material with each performance, and numerous musical parameters are left to the player’s discretion, including instrument/sound choices, and the lengths of musical sections. Like other pieces in this series, the composition aims to explore the possibilities of uniquely-generated content, establish a dynamic relationship between human and computer sounds, and showcase the musician’s talent.
