VIOLIN-HORN DUO WITH COMPUTER-REALIZED SURROUND SOUND
Composer: Ewa Trebacz
Josiah Boothby, French horn | Ewa Trębacz, violin / electronics
The live performance component is based on improvisation and on a very close interaction between the musicians. Through their interactions they should become one integrated sound source, a single musical instrument responding to the pre-recorded soundscapes and to the acoustic space around them.
The fixed-media part serves as a “score”, the musicians should improvise, creating a direct dialog with the pre-composed soundscape. Live processing is optional – the use of any live processing should be decided based on the acoustic conditions of the concert hall.
The original version of the fixed-media layer is Ambisonic, so it can be rendered to any desired number or channels. The B-format “Master” can be found under the “Score Resources” link.
