Glaer, Icelandic for ‘transparent’, is the newest project by Maja Jantar and Kristof Lauwers.
In glaer, the sounds of Maja’s voice are treated digitally with various effects by Kristof, using Pure Data patches. She is using a theremin that allows her to change the parameters of those effects. The sound of the theremin itself is no heard, it’s purely used as control interface.
Glaer is not a written out composition, but an open structure that leaves room for improvisation.
