Version of my live-coding performance for ART´S BIRTHDAY 2015 organized by Radiotelevisión/European Broadcasting Union (UER/EBU). — Radio Clásica (RNE), Madrid (Spain).
“Sampling Polonio” is my tribute to Spanish electroacoustic music pioneer Eduardo Polonio (b.1941). The piece is a mashup made from plundering electroacoustic works by Polonio as well as my own. The result could be described as a semiotic exploration of the source works. This becomes apparent as musical significations are implied and dissolved through manipulation of sound. “Sampling Polonio” is improvised in a live-coding performance using a set of sampled materials drawn from the past (Polonio’s music between 1965 and 2001) and the present (my own recent work).
