Hangs and CrashesJason McChristian - jasonmcchristian.com
Publisher Desc. A hang is a computer term for the failure of a program to continue to respond to signals, causing the operating system to freeze. Hangs occur in different ways, but this work depicts two common symptoms of the hang: thrashing, the exhaustion of memory from rapidly exchanging data and infinite loop, where a sequence of instructions is in no condition to stop. The work ends with the death knell to any operating system, a crash aptly named, Blue Screen of Death. Depicting failing machines, this is music marked by frequent reboots, constant bleeps, bops, clicks, the occasional rude interruption, and makes use of ever-repeating musical figures to help depict an eternal state of stuck.
