39 works on this 3 cd set.  3 CDs for the price of 2.   Phase/Transitions is a 3-CD set of 39 electro/acoustic improvisations by Triple Point. There have been no overdubs or post-processing. Triple Point is an improvising trio whose core instrumentation is soprano saxophone, greis/electronics and V-accordion. The name refers to the point of equilibrium on a phase plot, which acts as metaphor for our improvisational dialogue. Their musical interaction is centered around an interplay between acoustics, physically-modeled acoustics (v-accordion) and electronics. Van Nort captures the sound of the other performers on-the-fly, either transforming these in the moment to create blended textures or new sonic gestures, or holding them for return in the near future. Oliveros changes between timbres and "bends" the intended factory sound models through her idiosyncratic use of the virtual instrument, while Braasch explores extended techniques including long circular-breathing tones and multiphonics. This mode of interaction has resulted in situations where acoustic/electronic sources are indistinguishable without very careful listening, while others times this becomes wildly apparent. This continual, fluid morphing is a product of Deep Listening and living in the moment.
