English program note

This piece is an improvisation based on the structure of the American composer Harry Partch's 43-tone Just Intonation scale; a division of the octave in 43 unequal steps. The 43 notes of the scale have been distributed among the five instruments, and it is only together that they can explore the full potential of the scale. The collaborative aspect of this piece is further explored by its meta-instrumnts: instruments that are hidden under the surface and for which the players need to join forces in order to control.

The title, The Mystic Writing Pad, refers to Freud's 1924 paper in which he lays out a hypothesis about the inner functionlity of human perception. Though much can be said about his hypothesis (and much has been said about it, not the least by French philosopher Jacques Derrida) my resons for choosing this title is much more practical and metaphorcal. The functionality of the technology upon which Switched-On relies can often be very mystical, but the ease with which it can be used to register the phrases played by the musicians is truly akin to a writing pad: great at quickly taking notes (in two senses of the word), but terrible at making thoroughly thought through statements.
