  • Technical specs: 

    Technical description
    This piece is written for 4 instruments (clarinet, violin, cello, double-bass)
    and four voices of electronic sounds (mainly sine-waves being ring modulated by noise-bands) The frequency of these sine-waves is controled by a pitch following algorithm on each microphone, each instrument controlling its own sinewave. The final result is an ensemble of 4 instruments plus an additive synthesizer driven live by the musicians themselves. Nevertheless, the fifth musician (the electronic’s performer) is having another level of control in which he is mainly dealing with transposition of this electronic sounds and their amount of "noisiness". In addition he is controlling the feed-back door that is opened for the dramatic end of the piece.
