grey matters

2009 | cello & electronics

comments

gray matters is the result of a close collaboration with cellist émilie girard-charest.

The work’s electroacoustic score is elaborated following different operations based on sampling frequencies, unfolding speeds as well as transformations made to soundfiles themselves. Among the sonorous origins one finds a turntable, a tape recorder, the sound of an electric fence as well as cello recordings. one hears in the spoken introduction various excerpts from a text by Howard Philip Lovecraft. grey matters is the first and shorter version of the more comprehensive piece altered grey, wherein similar ideas are developed and modified further.
