The next Thursday, June 25, 2015 (3:30 PM, Concert 15) Gianni Trovalusci will perform my work “no sun, no moon” at the NYCEMF 2015 (New York City Electroacustic Music Festival). The concert will be at the Playhouse in the Abrons Arts Center, 466 Grand St, New York, NY 10002.
The NYCEMF is dedicated to showcasing the best electroacoustic music and video art from all over the world in New York City, through a multi-day festival. The festival includes electroacoustic music recorded alone in up to eight channels, works involving live electronics, works combining musical instruments or voices with recorded or live electronics, video and multimedia works, and audio and video installations. This festival will take place June 21-28, 2015 at the Abrons Arts Center and other locations in New York City.
My piece “no sun, no moon” combines the bass flute with fixed media electronics. The flutist can “read” the electronic, which is notated in the score, and follow it. The result is a sort of “chamber music” where one part is alive and suitable for interpretation and micro-changes, while the other (the electronic) is fixed and can not be changed. The work plays with different virtual acoustic spaces and the relationship with the real one on the stage.
The composition and creation of the electronics has been made exclusively with recorded samples of the bass flute. In this way I create a relationship between the two parts of the work: the real one (flute performer) and the virtual one (electronic).
Do not hesitate to hear Gianni play my piece if you happen to be in New York. It’s going to be an awesome concert!
