Extrusion en Salamanca, La Haya y Barcelona

Extrusion, la segunda pieza del ciclo [d]espacio, será interpretada los días 6 y 8 de marzo respectivamente en Salamanca y La Haya dentro de sendos estrenos del ciclo completo. Posteriormente el día 23 Extrusion formará parte de un programa de música octofónica organizado por el Instituto Phonos en la Universidad Pompeu Fabra de Barcelona.

Sobre esta pieza escribimos hace un tiempo, así que os invitamos aquí a explorarla  un poquito en cinco minutos [solamente inglés]. En la página de Beatriz encontraréis un comentario sintético sobre Extrusion.

EXTRUSION [2010]
8-channel tape piece
Ángel Arranz

‘Everything is curved’. So did my dear colleague Casper Schipper define his first listening to Extrusion, the second electronic piece from a series of four works, which I expect to finish in 2011. Maybe it is because of my renewed interest in Baroque aesthetics, maybe because of a more aware use of the spatial/temporal qualities of the materials, certainly it results in a more flexible approach to time than even in my previous electronic piece, Electronic Study. The piece was composed thinking about the features of the space in which it has been premiered, the Schoenbergzaal of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. To a certain extent, in Extrusion sounds seem to be closer to the limits of the space they inhabit. I have always found especially suitable the apparently austere concavities of the Schoenbergzaal, an architectural compound of solid bricks and wood. In order to develop spatial gestures of sounds in a physical way, the hall is not hugely big as a large concert hall, but long and wide –and high- enough as to magnify some sonic gestures, which draw a completely new impression of the space fed by the music. So, space becomes a sort of instrument just in the moment when you try to modify the perceptions that the audience have about it in a virtual way along a deconstructed timeline.

about

The DK<projection> is an independent multi[inter]disciplinary group whose creative stimulus is the use of technology as a vehicle of musical and artistic transformation.

Algorithmic composition, fixed media, live electronics, live video-​performance, video-​installation, sound installation, photography, contemporary dance, documentary film and architecture, are some of the multimedia expressions explored within an organic whole, starting from the reinvention of musical genres that play a role in visual arts, applied technology and sound spatialization.

From now on, in this blog you can find interesting items related with electronic music, computer music, algorithmic composition, references to a variety of sonological subjects, such as architecture and music, literature related to it, articles, interviews, et cetera. Also, this is will be the place in which we will announce our activities and calendar.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy writing it!

Warm greetings,

The DK <Projection> Team
