To Scare the Moon with its Own Shadow

Music commissioned by Sebastian Berweck
Piece for solo performer playing live electronics. Composed in a polyphonic way, the piece gives the performer control over multiple layers of sounds (that we will relate to as instruments). The piece must be played on a 88-notes keyboard with extra controllers. The keyboard is split in a series of note ranges so that the performer can play simultaneously many of the instruments. It is important that the performer familiarizes himself with each of the instruments in order to fully understand his role in the music making of this piece.
Max MSP patch required for the performance of the piece.
