Lecture/recital: A Live Processing Approach to Compositional Process
Real-time audio processing techniques can be organized into categories of orchestration that can be applied rigorously to the compositional process. Examining how these processes can be used formally to create a work wholly derived from live sounds in performance, Prof. Vidiksis will discuss these methods and present examples from his own compositions, including synapse_circuit, Comm, Things that Live in the Whirligig, and Mitochondrial Dreams, for percussion and live computer processing. Prof. Vidiksis will also discuss how stochastic methods and machine improvisation can be used as robust control methods in both formal and improvisational structures.
Following, Vidiksis will perform alongside renowned clarinetist Matthias Müller and electronic percussionist Simon Berz. This concert will feature Müller’s Sensor-Augmented Bass Clarinet (SABRe). This concert is produced as part of Vidiksis’s composer residency at the Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology at Zürcher Hochschule der Künste.
