Notes

  • Program notes: 

    STRÖM is a piece for five loudspeakers, live electronics and video, based on an
    open-minded, artistic approach towards electricity. The piece is an attempt to transfer electric
    current via sound to the audience. The five speakers struggles to take over the sonic stream like
    electro-magnets. Sine waves and noise rotates with breakneck speeds around the listeners, tries
    to charge them with static electricity and, as an ultimate goal, even make them levitate.
    The video, made by Fredrik Olofsson, consists of five lines resembling electric wires inflicting
    each other with violent discharges and eruptions – manipulated live by the performer.

  • Technical specs: 

    • A 5.0 surround PA system of good quality, matching the size of the venue. I will send 5 channels
    of sound from my soundcard (RME Fireface UCX with balanced jack outputs. DI-boxes may be
    required.). The channel layout is L, R, Ls, Rs, C.
    • A projector of good quality and a (preferrably) large projection screen. The video is generated in
    realtime on my on-stage laptop, so a long HDMI cable may be needed.
    • A table for live electronic instruments. It should be around 100-110 cm high (i perform standing).
