L. Scott Price's work reflects an overall interest in the expressive potential of sound, focusing especially in the areas of acousmatic/fixed media composition, synthesis, sound processing, spectral composition, just intonation, algorithmic composition, and both human and computer improvisation. He is currently a DMA student at the University of North Texas where he studies with David Bithell and Jon Christopher Nelson. He holds degrees from Bowling Green State University and Illinois Wesleyan University. Past teachers include Marilyn Shrude, Elainie Lillios, Burton Beerman, and David Vayo. Notable performances include Dangerous Curves in Los Angeles, Electroacoustic Juke Joint at Delta State University, Electric LaTex, the University of Nebraska at Kearney New Music Festival, and the Threshold Festival of Electronic Music. Recent works include a commission from the duo Guthrie and Streb and a series of pieces using poetry of noted philosopher Quentin Smith.
gets its title from the overall shape of its sonic progression: from distant, slow moving, and indistinct sounds to discrete, resonant, and distinctly pitched material. I liken this progression to a slow revealing of hidden beauty, much like pulling layered veils from a work of art. Within this overall shape, certain compositional decisions are determined at performance time by logic built into the computer playback system. By using this logic, every performance realizes a variety of unique details within the same overall progression.
