Electroacoustic music is a highly abstract musical art form that is arguably very much still open to further innovation. In this project I took the ideas that were pioneered by the likes of Pierre Schaeffer and brought them in to the 21st century; using modern day methods to achieve this, the results of which are a significant departure from the methods employed in the early days of the genre.
This project was a highly atmospheric piece with sections in the form of movements. These movements took on influences from various composers whilst keeping the Electroacoustic ethic and were created in the space of one continuous track. The piece was mixed for a quadraphonic (4 speaker) system
The research has involved extensive listening of seminal Electroacoustic works from pioneers such as Pierre Schaeffer, Ligeti, Stockhausen and in particular, Xennakis. These artists fueled much of the inspiration for the piece.
The version on this web page is the stereo version of the track. It is different to the Quadrophonic version, due to bandwidth restrictions this would not be viable to post on the site (not yet anyway!)
Incidently, all of the sounds were recorded using a Neumann KM184 microphone.
