Sift - violin + electronics (2001)

Eric Rynes (Artist, Performer). Composers: Pierre Boulez, Elliott Carter, Kotoka Suzuki, Giacinto Scelsi, Helmut Lachenmann, Iannis Xenakis, Joel-Francois Durand, Michael Alcorn, and Theo Loevendie. Format: Audio CD

"The unifying element on this CD is the violin. Its tremendous versatility and long musical history have inspired an enormous number of composers to create works featuring and exploring it. The nine diverse works from the late 20th and early 21st centuries for violin here, together, make for a multi-course meal. Mikka and Other Assorted Love Songs, with its wink to the legendary rock album, aspires to wittiness, but here it's also meant to convey an element of how Eric Rynes conceives of and performs this music. Hailed for his "committed," "intrepid," and "achingly beautiful" performances in diverse styles and genres, Eric Rynes appears in recital, is concertmaster of the Northwest Symphony Orchestra, and has made guest appearances with jazz and rock groups. Primary violinist of the Seattle Modern Orchestra, Rynes has premiered works in Berlin, Havana, Chicago, Barcelona, and Rotterdam, among many other cities. He is a graduate of the University of Washington with degrees in violin and statistical genetics and has degrees in physics from the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois."

Yoei - Music Score & CD (1999)            
ML29.1 .S968

Yoei - six percussionists, dancer and compact disc of computer-generated sounds (1999)

"... a dancer ... triggers and controls the electronic sounds in real-time using the five electric sensors that are attached to his/her body. All the computer generated sound sources derive from the sounds of the percussion instruments used in this piece, and similarly, the percussion often imitates the sound of the computer-generated sound of the cd and the dancer"

Includes instructions for performance.
