World Premier Next Weekend

Some time ago I received a commission from the Boulder Philharmonic and Shreveport Symphony Orchestras to create a piece of visual music to accompany a live performance of a work by composer Cindy McTee entitled Circuits.

This coming Saturday, Feb 1 2020, is the world premier of it in Shreveport. So if you’re in Shreveport, or the ArkLaTex region, check it out: it promises to be an interesting concert.

The video will be displayed using a bit of technology from Ion Concert Media called Muséik, which links the visual playback to the conductor’s tempi, thus liberating the conductor from slavishly following a click track to sync the music to the visuals.

The piece will also be performed in Boulder on April 25.

I can’t share a link to the finished piece right now, but here’s a link to a teaser for it. I’ll provide a link to the full piece after the Boulder concert. And here’s a link to Ion’s content library where the piece is available for future public rental.

I cannot adequately express my gratitude to the processing community for 1) creating the tool I’ve long sought which allows me to do my art in the way I want to do it, and 2) for the tremendous support and comraderie here. Thank you.


I like this piece very much! Syncing music to generative art interests me greatly. Good Work!

Thank you very much, Jeremy.

And thank you very much for all your help! You (and a few others, but you especially) saved me countless hours with your technical expertise and suggestions. I really am deeply grateful.

On a different note, here’s the local write-up about the concert. I got a few nice lines.

Just about now the concert in Boulder would begin. Myself, wife, and son had planned on driving from Toronto to attend, make it a nice family roadtrip vacation.

But, of course, the rest of the season was cancelled, just like every other non-essential service. (Though are music & art non-essential…?) I’ve been told by the conductor that the piece will be programmed for the 2022 season.

So in lieu of the concert I’ll simply release the piece now: Circuits
