SOUNDINGS: OCEAN DIARY
Each performer uses different sound materials, derived from peripheral "ocean" sources: sea mammals, Arctic ice, fish, telemetry and sonar, ship noises.
The sounds are preconditioned by a group of input modifiers, and then acoustically presented via a group of output modifiers, which substantially alter their characteristics.
The choice of electronic components effecting these alterations can differ with each performance.
The sound system employs a sophisticated electronic panning process, distributing the sounds among three systems: two clusters of four speakers each which are moveable, hanging from the ceiling at either side of the space; and an encompassing group of four additional channels. Thus three different architectural spaces are defined.
It is envisioned by the composer that from time to time, the sound materials will change with invited contributions.
