“Integra” as a music composition, may be defined as accumulative in its structure. As the piece progresses, musical components are added, causing the expansion of textural density, rhythmic complexity, dynamic and registral range to increase. The climax occurs at the end, with the musical forces at the maximum. The slides used in this work were made with the aid of an Amiga 1000 microcomputer. Many of the images were digitized with an A-Squared Live! digitizer. Other images were taken from a large table top set, and some on-site photography was employed. Visually, the work deals with the illusion of object and space (negative and positive space). Many of the variations of the final images are created by the simultaneous projection of several slides on the same area, creating an obvious foreground background relationship. “Integra” was realized at the Queen's University Computer Music Studio, directed by Dr Bruce Pennycook.
