Electroacoustic Composition, 2014
INTERFACE – New Music for Organ and Electronics
The Union Chapel Organ Project presents the special cooperation of new music for Organ from the Unit for Sound Practice Research at Goldsmiths, University of London. The concert showcases works that were composed during The Organ Project University Workshop Series with Roger B. Williams, exploring the interface between electronic and acoustic music.
This composition can be regarded as separate components in the form of graphic score. I applied the concept of self-organizing system for audio processing. The organ part and the real-time audio feedback are inter-related, in which the organ phrases trigger the feedback while the performer is free to improvise accordingly to the unexpected feedback. It is this type of unpredictability that forms the core element of this work.
The graphic score for organ aims to use the visual symbols as a media for me to convey my intentions to the performer. These symbols include geometric shapes, linear lines and waves to be played in a specific time as indicated and explained by the use of keys.
