article 6 [waves] (2013)

article 6 [waves] (2013) by Rozalie Hirs is a lyrical, virtuosic composition for electric guitar and relatively simple electronic glissandi, synthesized from pure sine waves, employing binaural beatings and ring modulation only. The instrumental lines are enveloped by, or cut through, the glissandi moving in several large waves. article 6 [waves] (2013) is the sixth episode by Rozalie Hirs in a series of solo compositions with or without electronic sounds. article 6 [waves] (2013) investigates the overtone realm of article 7 [ways to climb a mountain] (2012) for bass clarinet and electronic sounds. In addition it served as the starting point for article 8 [infinity] (2014) for flute and electronic sounds. The three pieces can be played separately as solo works, but were also conceived to be played in conjunction, i.e. simultaneously, as the trio infinity stairs (2014).
