Fracterruptions is a multi-channel composition for electric guitar and live electronics. The piece is an exploration of spatial and temporal fracture in electroacoustic performance, in which the traditional relationships between performer, instrument, sound and space are ruptured through a combination of processing, sonic manipulation, and creative fracture. The work employs both analogue hardware and software-based processing that is controlled directly as well as through gesture monitoring and a number of generative processes. The resulting sonic materials are then heard via the guitar amplifier on stage and simultaneously diffused live over a four-channel speaker system. The result is a work that forces a continual re-calibration between composition, performer, instrument, sonic material, performance space and listener – all which exist in fluctuating and multi-layered spaces/temporalities.
