This performance of "Mercury Weaves the Shifting Lattice," for vibraphone, glockenspiel (w/resonant metals), and electronics, was performed by Undue (Nick Fox and Trevor Saint) at Northern Illinois University on October 11, 2014.
"For many years, my music combining instruments and electronics has been focused on the exploration of performer intuition. To this end, I have included very light algorithmic processing in the performance of the electronics, with a goal of creating predictable and consistent electronic parts, but with mild variation so that performers can't simply memorize them. By doing so, I hope to help make their interactions with the electronic sounds be fresh and unique, and to invite performers to explore what interests them in the moment. In Mercury Weaves The Shifting Lattice, although the electronics are fairly consistent and the duration of the piece is fixed, there is a small element of momentary randomness that makes them different each time. Mercury Weaves The Shifting Lattice was composed for Undue (Trevor Saint and Nick Fox) in summer/fall 2014." - Jeff Herriott (http://jeffherriott.com)
