String Song

Instrumentation: kinetic sculpture and live electronics

String Song is a guided improvisation for prepared kinetic sculpture and live electronics.  The sculpture is a collaboration between Aurie Hsu  and Kyle Hartzell. The sculpture uses wooden gears that are motorized to draw a “bow” continuously across the string.  The instrument serves as a sound source for live electronics that further expand the instrument.
