Borderlands was premiered in March 2011 in Lynnwood, WA before a sold-out audience. This 35-minute piece features four musicians (vln, vlc, cl, pno) who also double on percussion instruments while being live processed by the Supercollider Borderlands Patch. Additional audio samples are triggered by a laptop performer who accompanies the ensemble. A score, a copy of the Supercollider code, software screenshots, and an essay documenting the Borderlands process and philosophy are all located below.
