sequence (bloom)


sequence (bloom) is like a vocalise, executed with a careful ear to the internal (spectral) characteristics of sources, their spatial implications, and gestural profiles. Utilizing the signal processing software PVCplus and SuperCollider, the traditional context of voice and piano is extended into an imaginary digital soundscape: vocal fragments pulse with rapid precision and disperse in different virtual spaces, or they become spectrally ‘frozen’ – displacing the source identity through gradual shifts between tone and noise elements that comprise the spectra of source sounds. The work does not aim to transform the digitally mediated “duo” far beyond its familiar nature, but rather to present an exaggerated performance that draws attention to its own acoustic/electronic hybridity.
