Chasm was written to explore and exploit the possibilities of the stereo fieldand the environment that this exploitation creates. This work for tape alonecreates an environment for the listener that, at present, is unattainable inacoustic music. Every element of Chasm was created in a digital environment. At its genesis, this work was conceived using various synthesis techniques inC-Sound and manipulated with various computer programs available in the MPACTcenter at the Conservatory of Music-University of Missouri-Kansas City. Chasm is most successful when listened to extremely loud.
