The Thief of Always

by Bielmeier, Douglass Christopher

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.
