Vidiksis will present his quadraphonic piece Stria [feather] Remix, a reworking of John Chowning’s 1977 classic written in Csound.

John Chowning’s 1977 commission for IRCAM, Stria, has become an icon of electroacoustic music. Part of the beauty of this work is found in the vast musical variety produced from the same algorithmic process. This remix of his seminal work seeks to create rhythmic complexity in correlation to the parameters of Chowning’s original timbres. All the rhythmic figures in the reworking of this piece are derived through one algorithm. It creates an envelope that differs based on the parameters of the original programming. From this combination, both rhythmic variety and new timbres are formed from the combination of this new programming and the original. This remix was created in Csound, based on the recreation of this piece by Kevin Dahan from the original MUS10 orchestra file with modifications by Chowning and Dahan. It is presented with full permissions from Chowning and Dahan.

The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival will take place June 2—8, 2014 at the Abrons Arts Center in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. It is dedicated to showcasing the best electroacoustic music and video art from all over the world in New York City, through a multi-day festival. The festival will include electroacoustic music recorded alone in up to eight channels, works involving live electronics, works combining musical instruments or voices with recorded or live electronics, video and multimedia works, and audio and video installations.
