The last year, starting Ideas Block took most energy, and music and artistic developments have happened during this period. This post is about the latest event, in which I had the opportunity to participate in the Susikirtimai cycle of sound art and experimental music events, organized by Kirtimai Culture Centre in Vilnius, Lithuania.
This cycle of concerts use a spatial sound system with 8 individual channels, suitable for so called 3D audio rendering, in ambisonics or other formats.
I use this system not with ambisonics, but with a self-made max for live plugin to render movement of sound sources in space in a live setup. The result was a composition for a concert of around 45min. Using sounds of analogue/digital synthesis, samples, a number of effects, along with the spatial movement in an immersive performance, a narrative emerges out of ideas of music as a natural event, just as language or communication, and evolution into the musically structured states of mind.
