density #5 - laptop performance for multiple loudspeakers.
Periodic behaviours and cyclic movements in different structural levels characterize the basic concept of my ‘density’ – performance series. Computer generated, slender sounds are mixed and layered to complex textures, arranged in different, alternate and circular motions. Another important concept of my performance is the spatial depth of the sound. Due to the multiple loudspeakers, the sound obtains yet another structural dimension. Hence the overall idea is to sketch different views of an evolving sound sculpture in its different dimensions.
