GLOBALE: Tangible Sound Festival in ZKM
MetadataShow full item record
Talandon, is a live composition for a custom designed electrouacoustic musical instrument and light. The music is developed around a basic rhythmic pattern radiated directly from the body of the instrument and from a set of physical models simulating various vibrating structures. The interplay between the rhythmic gestures [form] of the performer and the resonance of the physical and virtual bodies [colour] is enriched, transformed and amplified by the presence of the light component of the composition. The novelty and the significance of the piece can be identified in the interaction and also in the interplay between the physical and the simulated sounds. Moreover the body of the instrument has been designed and developed using digital fabrication methods that reflect the rhythmical elements of the structure composition. Therefore the rhythmical patterns appear on the physical form, on the triggered light pulses and on the sonic component of the piece.
