Play is mainly an improvisation based on the experimentation with different sound generation and capture systems that I developed for my hyper guitar. I started the building of this guitar during the summer of 2011 to have a unique tool for playing and providing new compositional possibilities. I developed a hexaphonic sustainer system as well as one to capture the body of the instrument and the strings individually. This piece is a search on new timbres and sounds by exploring new playing techniques. Every sounds you hear is produced by the instrument and some live processing algorithms; no triggering of samples or playback track.
