SE-LIEN CHUANG: OF WHICH YOUR SOUL WAS CONSTITUTED
FRIDAY APR 05, 05:00 PM
The Austrian Cultural Forum is pleased to support this concert by Austrian-based composer, pianist and media artist Se-Lien Chuang. She will be performing her composition for violoncello, multichannel playback and live-electronics, of which your soul was constituted (2011), at the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival together with Austrian musician and composer Andreas Weixler.
"The individual privileged playing techniques are inherent in each performer. At the staging with the spatial infill of the natural acoustic feeds and the artificial electronic/electroacoustic surrounds the appearances of the subjective impression of the composer and the objective expression of the player squire the audience to a voyage of the longed for poetic and quaint scenery. The electronic/electroacoustic sounds are transformed from the recording of the cello sounds. The transformation is treated by using PitchShift to granulate the audio input, also a FFT SpectralDelay is also applied to the live-electronics." - Se-Lien Chuang
