A performance of Calder's Violin by Marcus Barcham-Stevens at the Performance Space, City University, London UK, as a part of the 2012 SuperCollider Symposium.

'Calder's Violin' is a composition for violin and automatic piano. The music is algorithmically generated, including the violin part which is notated live as the piece progresses. The general textures and references of the music are intended to be predictable, but detail is new each time: an attempt to emulate in the medium of electronically generated music the 'mystifyingly exquisite variation' of performance on traditional, acoustic instruments. Some of the material for Calder's Violin has been previously developed for the on-going dance and music project 'Triggered'.
