Title: Convergence

Instruments: Electronics

Program Notes:

Convergence is a musical representation of many types of convergences.  The first, and most aurally obvious is a pitch convergence on C6 (slightly sharp).  The second is a spatial convergence.  The low sounds begin panned hard right and the high are hard left.  As they come together in terms of pitch, they also meet in the middle.  The third type of convergence is a timbral one.  As the piece progresses the colors in all the voices (with the exception of the pops) change to make the sound brighter and more timbrally compatible.  By the final note, the sounds blend together to create a warm, but still very bright, timbre.  The piece was written using FM synthesis and sampling.
