    This duo was originally commissioned by the University of Washington School of Drama to be performed after a play. With each concert performance, the piece slowly drifted away from its theatrical origin. To reflect that process, a new title - Iriviskia - has been added. "Iriviskia" is a computer-generated word and it doesn't have any specific meaning.

    The live performance component is based on improvisation and on a very close interaction between the musicians. Through their interactions they should become one integrated sound source, a single musical instrument responding to the pre-recorded soundscapes and to the acoustic space around them.
