Rock Paper Scissors is a document of composer Ryan Ingebritsen's years-long work with some of his closest fellow musicians. These six collaborative, composed, and improvised pieces were recorded in locations throughout the city of Chicago chosen specifically for acoustic properties which best served the music at hand. Part improvisation, part electronic, part interactive with the acoustic space itself, each work explores the world that exists between the notes on the page, the speakers in the room, and the space where instrumentalist and electronic manipulator react to one another in real time. The result: a static moment, recorded in history. Like two people playing a game of Rock Paper Scissors.
In collaboration with: Erica Dicker, Erica Mott, Josh Rubin, Sam Scranton, Spektral Quartet, & Third Coast Percussion.
