Étude 2 - between the artificial and the natural.

Electronic Music

Throughout these days of isolation due to COVID-19 I decided to start a new serie: "Études"

This study was inspired by the thought of listening to digital produce big room acoustics intertwined with natural church acoustics. How do we perceive and listen to these two realities?
The piece consists of field recordings of diverse churches done throughout the day when they are empty to visit. Church St James in Brno (CZ), Stevens Kerk in Nijmegen (NL) and Mariazell Basilica (AT) orchestrated with my voice and movement in different digital acoustic rooms.
These digital mimicries display an alternative way of listening and association. A natural digital cacophony in counterpoint with an acoustic cluster.
