12-minute piece for viola, live electronics, and glove controller
Composer: Seth Thorn
Verdacht situates the viola in a “suspicious” context, bookended by a chaotic punk-aesthetic, extended with a glove made specifically for it, also acting as an autonomous controller here. Fully notated, with space for rhythmic and melodic improvisation in a fixed order of scenes. Contextual sounds are produced on the fly from live samples looped or frozen with extreme panning – again, a suspicious context for the instrument, stylistically approached in this piece maniacally but traditionally.
