Doug Theriault: Read (Red)
This piece uses only sounds from the guitar as it’s source material.
The guitar was (is) recorded live and played back in a buffer. The buffer was altered depending on what the composition called for. Here are the instructions:
Instructions depend on equipment used. Email me for further instructions
Buffer Time: adjusted using how many coins are tossed. Heads means 2 tales means 1. Amount of coins used depend on how many you currently have in your pocket.
Pitch: adjusted by how many pine cones seeds are shown after throw. If no access to pine cones use how many receipts you have in your pocket and divide by two. If no receipts then stop playing and go buy something. Then, the next throw divide by 4. The next throw divide by 8. The rest of the throws think of a time when you needed money and divide by how many times you ate that week.
Throw both at a time as the piece progresses. Any set time is allowed.
Play time: adjusted before one minute. After 20 minutes adjusted by ones own choice.
These instructions are not set and can be altered at any time. Please use discretion.
