THE GESTURE IN ELECTROACOUSTIC MUSIC
A TODOR TODOR TODOROFF CONFERENCE
"I have always wanted to reintroduce the gesture in my work with computer music, in order to combine the sound possibilities offered in the digital domain with the expressiveness that instrumental, exploratory, sensual, spontaneous or repeated playing allows. Combining motion capture and sound processing, digital lutherie makes it possible to create new "virtual instruments" where the gesture is no longer constrained by mechanical and acoustic contingencies. In the studio, they allow us to revisit the notion of "sequence-play" of the beginnings of concrete music and to enrich them with the help of alogrithmic virtual devices that can generate both temporal structures and spectral and spatial transformations. Auditory feedback is restored, the musician can intuitively explore new sound worlds by ear.
He can train, perfect his movements, acquire virtuosity, master nuances and give meaning to the material he generates. These same instruments can be used in other contexts: on stage, with acoustic instruments or with dancers, but also for interactive sound installations. The presentation will be illustrated with videos showing several of these applications. »
