Cadence (III. Decrescendo) – for computer realized sound (2005)

Cadence for computer realized sound is the third in a series of pieces exploring four musical changes: crescendo, decrescendo, accelerando and ritardando. Cadence uses the last few seconds of Schubert's quartettsatz in c minor as source material for a large scale decrescendo. Rather then just turning the volume down on the sound, the piece is shaped spectrally over its duration, gradually stripping away more and more of the sound until it disappears completely.
