Feed Forward toys with the interplay of matter and form. It starts all cleanly cut: sharp edges, stark shifts, sound shoved into separate, self-contained units. Progressively, boundaries begin to break down. Things bleed through and blur. Acoustic material, once severed and sliced, stretches out and starts to morph into fused, fluid expanses that dissolve structural barriers.
Feed Forward was commissioned for Klangforum Wien on receipt of the Impuls International Composition Competition. It premiered at the Impuls Festival in Graz, Austria on February 13th, 2015.
