"Test Anxiety" represents my first attempt at putting together a piece using only recorded samples and Digital Performer. The source audio in this piece come from objects that can be found in the typical classroom (pencils, paper, a clock, etc).

"wte" is my attempt at writing an interactive piece for trombone and computer. To compose the piece I wrote patches in MAX/MSP that allowed me to play into a microphone and send the live audio from my trombone through the software where it would either be recorded as a sample or sent through various filters and delays. The computer program is controlled by the use of a foot pedal that allows the performer to switch between patches. The piece is mostly improvised, with the score simply indicating melodic fragments, harmonic suggestions, and where to switch between patches.
