and then there was one

A new work commissioned by The Juilliard School

and then there was one was created in collaboration with choreographer Loni Landon and commissioned by The Juilliard School.  The piece is for String Quartet with Live Electronic Processing.  All of the sounds in the piece are generated live by electronically manipulating the sound of the string quartet.  Begin uses a touch-screen controller to dynamically control the electronic effects, allowing him to play the effects live, like another instrument in the ensemble.
