This evening a composition of threee section entitleĀ Filtering 6-14 will be performed. Component of this performance will entail live control of software, electro-acoustic sculptures, a customized enclosure/sculpture designed to conduct live foley-art operations and vintage modular synthesis (EMS Synthi).

 

In the concert multiple media, (physical and electroacoustic sound sources, archival audio recordings, foley art, analog synthesis and customized softare) are used to produce an enormous variety of sounds that are nearly, but not quite identical. Attempting to produce identical sonic character with different media yields subtle differences in timbre and texture unattainable within any one medium. This project involves the live performance of an original composition that also designates improvisational elements and responses as moment-form reactions to timbral clusters and gestures. This affords a unique realization and interpretation every time the composition is performed.
