SEGMOD CD RELEASE AND TALK
September 20th
Start 19h
KM28, Karl-Marx-Str. 28, 12043 Berlin

Segmod is a non-standard sound synthesis that embraces the discrete nature of digital sound. All sounds created with Segmod result from the concatenation of simple periodic waveforms, such as sine, triangle, and square waves. The sixteen contributing composers have employed a vast array of different compositional, aesthetic, and technological strategies, ranging from inaudible sounds, to neural networks, chaotic functions, careful micro-montages, and analysis-resynthesis techniques. While the results differ widely in sound, all lead back to the idea that synthesis can be seen as a form of composition.

The new release will be presented at KM28, September the 20th. The event will feature eight live contributions and a panel discussion that will address the sound synthesis and materiality of the digital. The composers‘ contributions take up the Segmod synthesis process and develop various settings that encompass group improvisation as well as live-electronic solo sets, and performatively explore the material originally created for the release.

Concentric Rings in Magnetic Levitation is an hour long composition by Michael Pisaro, written for three musicians playing live and pre-recorded piano, percussion, sine waves, tape machines, various objects and found sounds, and comprised of fourteen interdependently moving layers of musical material. This multifaceted work creates a world within a world, a semblance of a naturally occurring environment within a performance space, in which both aesthetic and emotive sound qualities are elegantly balanced, glacially moving through time.
