Sachs-Mishalanie, Jacob: I if I 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    I if I is the third in a series of pieces exploring the differences in our interpretation of meaning, expression, and genuineness in acoustic and electronic sounds. Acoustic tones are juxtaposed with amplified, pre-recorded, and synthesized tones, and string noise is put up against white noise and recorded water sounds. Here are a few related questions: Is a recording merely an image of a past sound? Is an amplified sound less ‘real’ if the speaker is separated from the instrument? If we interpret a sound as ‘artificial,’ do we take it less seriously? Is there some space between ‘real’ and ‘artificial’?
