Gesture Study No. 1 is an open-ended exploration of touch-screen gestures for an ensemble of iPad performers. Over four sections, the performer improvise specific notes within notated rhythmic and gestural frameworks to emphasise the affordances of the iPads' touchscreen interfaces. The first notated iPad work written for Ensemble Metatone, it was premiered at the You Are Here festival, Canberra in March 2014 with an expanded ensemble of seven players. In this recording, the performers used the PhaseRings app.
