The Thief of Always
Abstract (Summary)The Thief of Always deals with the universal disposition of dealing with, accepting and understanding death. The Thief of Always is scored for a solo cellist, computer, and video. At approximately 13 minutes in duration the work is divided into six adjoining sections that deal with a few of the many views and emotions involved with death. The computer aspect of the piece utilizes the Max/MSP environment to process the live performance of the cellist. The accompanying film component of the work contains both a visual and audio component to help reinforce these stages of death.
