Suite II, Divergent Dialogues: acousmatic composition

Graeme Truslove (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition

Abstract

Divergent Dialogues exploits the fact that, in the studio under close microphone conditions, no two articulations of the same source sound are identical – there are always minute variations in timbre. This piece attempts to use these subtle differences as a vehicle for musical expression. The source recordings used to create the work were: two stones colliding, a rubber string being plucked, a piece of cardboard being creased and a sheet of plastic being twisted. An instrument was designed using MAX/MSP to create gestures from these recorded impulses, allowing them to be intuitively distributed throughout virtual space.
