This piece was based on an acoustic piano being mic'd and being put into a Max/MSP patch that created wild pitch shifted stuttering effects live. Eli Stein helped me set up the patch, which basically uses incoming audio to trigger a buffer to record and repeat a loop playing at a fixed speed and direction (basically meaning it could go in reverse or forwards in one octave down or up) at a random rate. I like this piece because it's very disorienting yet uses familiar elements to juxtapose that.
