iSLIDER is a play on words, adding the standard lower-case “i-” of Apple products (iPhone, iPad, etc.) to the word “slider”, which in this case refers to the sliders on a mixing desk or similar device. The “slider” in this case is in fact virtual slider used to manipulate an algorithm within the program devised to compose the piece. In this piece, the percussive raw material is morphed into numerous sound structures evoking varied sensations and associations.
