Elisabeth Schimana — Virus #3.3

The live generated electronic resonating body is the host to which the sounds of the instruments attach and adapt, they penetrate into it and use it for their replication. It is a struggle and synthesis between two resonating bodies. Together they stay alive.

7 instruments, around 50 oscillators, 8 pairs of ears open themselves to a feedback loop. I – the electronics – the host – the recursive control unit – a complex machine.

How can I communicate with a resonating body such as an ensemble? In the Virus series I opted for the language most familiar to me – live generated electronics – listening. Not sugar sprinkles or mere effects – absoluteness – the score.

Both bodies are audible. The Virus series is an expedition into acoustic perception, a sounding of the responses of our brains in the span of milliseconds, a plea for the precise acoustic moment.

And what do you hear?
