string quartet and skyscraper 2.0

This is the second iteration of string quartet and skyscraper, composed for the NYC based string quartet ‘The Rhythm Method’. The recordings of the previous version, with the sound installation, have been the source material for version 2.0. With the frequency analysis software ‘Spare’ I extracted main resonant frequencies of certain sections and transformed them back onto the instruments. Now in a traditional performance situation, the quartet is accompanied by four separate tracks of electronics which are too created with the original recordings and envelope (volume) controlled by the dynamics of the four players.
