LISTEN: Dissociation Sequences (C23h28o8) for cello and live electronics
Dissociation Sequences (C23H28O8) is a sonic depiction of the various dissociative psychoactive effects of Salvinorin A (salvia divinorum). The piece is comprised of four sections, each one focusing on a different combinations of cognitive and physical dissociation (physical motor function, temporal distortion, visual disconnection, spatial distortion), culminating in an eruption that combines all forms simultaneously. This piece was written for James Burch in the summer/fall of 2015 and is dedicated to Franklin Cox. Dissociation Sequences received second prize in the 2016 ASCAP/SEAMUS student commission at the 2016 SEAMUS conference at Georgia Southern University.
