    THE GRASS
    2018 /16 min/ 8 channels/acousmatics
    Charo Calvo
    Commission by GRM-INA Paris
    Recorded: Studio für Elektroakustische Musik ADK, Berlin/
    GRM-INA Paris and authors studio.
    Software development and
    recording engineer: Fabrice Moinet.
    Based on the poem “The Grass” by Jeffrey Yang
    Voice: Jeffrey Yang
    These lines from the poem of chino american poet Jeffrey Yang were enough to unleash a
    powerful cluster of sound images in my head. The word ‘grazed’ elsewhere in the poem, ‘grazed grass’,
    also inspired the ‘grazing’ sound of the filters. Fabrice Moinet developed a Max Patch using Cross
    Synthesis, Morphing and Source Filter signal processing. The sound of the words of the poem, read by
    the author himself, modulates all other recorded sources: a brush dance around binaural microphones, a
    brushed piano, strumming drums, wind. Guess who is talking.
    …wind strips, slips
    of time, the leaves
    words weave, unweave
    the
    grass
