Alessandro Cipriani: In Memory of a Recorder

  • ©, , In Memory of a Recorder

Artist Statement:


    This three-movement work is part of an ongoing research on the theme of the body and its absence in listening to music. All of the sounds (electronically elaborated) originate from a bass recorder. The piece is presented with a real recorder on a stand, the audience around it, and four loudspeakers around the audience. It was realized with the PODX system at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby (Canada) and at Agon in Milan (Italy) using real-time granular synthesis and block-reading technique.
