Program Note

"Off The Hook" uses the American off-hook telephone warning tone (a combination of 1400 Hz, 2060 Hz, 2450 Hz, and 2600 Hz), which is designed to draw attention to a phone handset left off-hook for an extended time. The sound is used in this work to desensitize the listener from the sound and explore its sonic properties through basic electronic manipulation. Off the Hook is also available as an interactive work for laptop ensemble, titled "Your Call Could Not Be Completed As Dialed"
