[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Stéphane Roy — Crystal Music

Artist Statement


Crystal Music is a music of forms, colors and materials that stand out due to their kinetic energies and the perspective given them in the interior space of the work. Like stained glass, the material has been expanded, ground, transmuted in the fiery furnaces of experimentation. Like crystal, it has been chiseled by the imagination which gives to these transparencies the power of illusion. The work was composed for the most part using the Common Lisp Music program of Bill Schottstaedt of CCRMA (Stanford University) during 1992-1993.
