Ring Series (2012) by Carolann DeYoung

Ring Series uses ideas explored in a previous work for piano and Max/MSP. The pitch material used in both come from partials eight to sixteen of the harmonic series and three expansions of it. The original piece used two patches, delay and ring modulation. To incorporate the electronic component with acoustic instruments, multiphonics in the
clarinet imitate ring modulation with a high modulating frequency. The vibratone and
vibraphone with use of the motor imitate the ring modulator when the modulating
frequency is low, creating a tremelo effect. – CDY
