Music Composition - Izzi Ramkissoon
Visual Artist - Alain Alfaro
Mixing and Mastering - Corey Folta
Kill Switch is an audio visual composition. The composition uses visuals to amplify the presence of the two duets occurring, one between the flute and cello the other between the laptop and percussion. The composition draws upon the idea of situations that turn out of control, blurring the lines between control and havoc into a progression towards the inevitable explosion unless avoided. The kill switch is often used to protect people from sustaining bodily harm and being killed, this can sometimes damage the machine in the process. Many mechanical devices contain a kill switch such as cars, lawnmowers, and locomotives. Kill Switch was commissioned by Sarah Carrier for her recent Master's recital.
