And yet another ground-breaking piece landed in my inbox a few days ago. Nathaniel Bartlett is an amazing composer, marimba virtuoso, and one of the best digital musicians I know of. Nate’s knowledge of computers and music technology is far, far beyond most mortals. His new piece is titled “Cronometro” and includes an innovative video score that I can play on my phone, which is quite handy for the Sonic Divide. You can see the entire score here:
The use of technology in this way is really exciting. Even though I’ll be pedaling up and down the mountains on my own power, the Sonic Divide is definitely a high-tech adventure what with a carbon bike, GPS, smart phone, dynamo hub, etc, etc. Nate’s creative use of technology is a perfect compliment to this project.
