Performance Notes

Electronics:
Laptop with Ableton Live 9
Audio Interface
7.1 Surround Playback System
Two octave MIDI Keyboard

Requires a two octave MIDI Keyboard in order to trigger the playback of taudio samples.
Sample triggering and playback are handled by the Ableton Live set created to accompany
the piece. All MIDI Keyboard triggers are notated in the score.

Samples may be triggered either by the Sound Engineer or Percussionist depending on what
is most convenient for the situation.

The soprano and all instruments should be lightly amplied and reverb should be utilized to
create a sense of blend with the sound world of the audio samples.

Note: In Movement I: I Grit My Teeth Against the Glacier, the loudest moments in the audio
samples occur in measures 8-10, at this point the volume level of the audio sample should be
slightly louder than the sound of the lightly amplied ensemble. Throughout much of the
rest of the piece, the samples are intentionally mixed at a relatively low volume, and are
primarily used to create a sense of atmosphere.

IV. The Distance
BetweenVacant Seas
For Flute:

tongue pizz:
syllable to be articulated:

aeolian/air sounds:

jet whistle:

For Mezzo-Soprano:

audibly inhale:

Unless otherwise indicated, all text should be spoken in a whisper and with a minimum of voiced content.
The voice should be toneless, unpitched, and breathy throughout. If pitch must be introduced, allow the pitches should rise
and fall inaccordance with the natural patterns and melodic shape of spoken speech. Absolutely avoid monotone.

Rhythms are indicated with standard notation in combination with a single line sta:

Electronics:
Laptop with Ableton Live 9
Audio Interface
Stereo or 5.1 Surround Playback System
Two octave MIDI Keyboard

Requires a two octave MIDI Keyboard in order to trigger the playback of two audio
samples: at measures 11 and 48 . Sample 1 is triggered by C#3 (61), Sample 2 by
D#3 (63). Sample triggering and playback are handled by the Ableton Live set created to accompny the piece.

Note for the Sound Engineer:


Both the voice and ute require substantial amplication in order to ensure the extremely quiet gestures that occur
throughout this movement are audible. The volume of the voice and ute should be equal. Both voice and ute should remain
clearly audible during sample playback.
