4-channel electroacoustic composition
year: 2000
duration: 14:27 min
studio: Klang Projekte Weimar

commissioned by Denis Dufour

résorption-coupure is a combination of synthetic sounds coming from physical modeling and recordings I made in different Asian cultures. The synthetic sounds were realized with the program Genesis/ACROE. The physical behavior of vibrating objects are simulated in the computer and their natural limitations extended. I created virtual objects which would not otherwise exist.
The compositions deals with two time aspects: continuity and interruption. During the piece the fact of cutting becomes continuous.
The recordings of Asian sources was not used as an anecdotal concept. I was more interested in their room and energy qualities in relation to the synthetic sounds.
The synthetic sounds were realized during a workshop on physical modeling at the ZKM Karlsruhe. The final composition was mixed in the studio of Klang Projekte Weimar.
