A piece for the <Chi> robot accompanied by the other robots of Logos’ Robot Orchestra
The source material for this piece are several field recordings i made over the years that i didn’t find good enough to present as field recording on their own, but which still did contained a lot of interesting sonic material. I started off with the idea of making a collage with the most appealing sounds from the field recordings, but ended up processing them quite heavily, so not much of the original sounds can be recognized in the end. Still the natural origin of the sources is reflected in an organic feel to the sounds, and their overall shapes determine the structure of the piece.
New track on Soundcloud: Study #17, for <Tinti>, one of the latest additions to Logos Robot Orchestra, built by Godfried-Willem Raes.
LOGOS FOUNDATION IS IN DANGER!
A commission has advised the Flemish Government to stop all funding for the Logos Foundation, an artist run centre for experimental music and sound art based in Ghent, Belgium.
LOGOS FOUNDATION URGENTLY NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!
Please sign this petition and urge the Flemish Government to keep funding the Logos Foundation.
Logos has been promoting experimental music and sound art since 1968. Cutting edge new instruments, installations and interfaces are being developed in the Logos workshop. The in-house robot orchestra is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the world.
Logos houses a treasure of know-how in the field of robotics, expression control and new sound generators. This knowledge has been implemented in creations by artists such as Kristof Lauwers, Laura Maes, Moniek Darge and Godfried-Willem Raes and international artists such as Troy Rogers, Warren Burt, Clarence Barlow and Steven Kemper.
Logos also provides support to other artists and offers local and international artists space to work and to perform. Besides, Logos creates made-to-measure installations, instruments and interfaces. Recent examples are the PVC-installation for Musica and an automated snare drum for Aphex Twin.
On December 9th i’m playing at AB in Brussels with a couple of robots of the Logos orchestra, next to Floris Vanhoof and Charlemagne Palestine.
Entrance is free but subscription mandatory.
