Cutting the Corners of a Multi-Art Environment was realized in the fall of 2001 at the Hiller Music Studios on the campus of SUNY at Buffalo. The piece contains two raw sound sources; a free improvisation by the music ensemble Triage and improvised readings of poetic mesostics created by Chelsea Warren and Ric Royer. Chelsea, Ric, and Monica Karwan read/recorded their interpretations of the mesostics. The individual sound sources were processed in real-time with a patch I created using the software Max/MSP and assembled using Pro Tools editing software. This piece is my interpretation of a sonic environment from a performance art piece created by the group RANT.
Cutting the Corners of a Multi-Art Environment was released on the compilation Out of Nowhere: Electro-Acoustic Music From The Upstate Fringe on the label Big Orbit Gallery in 2003.
