I'm listening back to the music which before I had only imagined, and now I can experience the real sounds reaching my ears. For me, very few things are more satisfying than that.
Our recent works are exploring the use of live electronics within the context of the jazz trio. I'm working through Ableton, using a Novation Launchpad to trigger electronic elements. I'm trying to avoid precomposing anything too rhythmic, because I'd rather have the trio perform as organically as possible, without having to wear headphones to hear a click, keeping them lined up with a click track. Instead, I'm composing more free-flowing electronic parts, that complement the trio, without competing for rhythmic dominance. There is something very beautiful in combining those acoustic and electronic sounds.
