Program Notes
Cookie Cutter is short piece in two sections; after a calm electronic texture is explored, similar melodic themes become complex, lively and rhythmic over constantly expanding chords in contrary motion. The intention behind composing this piece was to facilitate a more natural relationship between the performers and the electronic accompaniment by allowing them to trigger pre-recorded sounds in their own time, as opposed to following the rigid timing of a click-track. Ultimately this gives the performers more freedom to perform expressively and impromptu alongside the electronics, as if the electronics were a third member of the ensemble.
