Harvest Stream 2 is an eight channel piece developed especially for the new sound system at Harvestworks Studios, New York City. Each channel (speaker) has its own material and is designed to be mixed with the other channels (speakers) live during performance.
Many versions of this piece are possible. This presentation is one made by the composer himself. The material is drawn from the composers recordings of his own bass clarinet or electronic work or improvisations with others (with one exception this time). The extremes are quit varied. Some are so quiet, for example, you would not normally hear them less the other channels are either eliminated or very soft. Some Streams are longer and the audience is encouraged to walk around the performance space, thereby influencing the mix personally. Other audience members may just want to listen meditatively from a spot as close to the center as possible.
