On March 15th 2017 I released my new album “De Caelo“. All pieces on this album are inspired by and related to astronomy. Research was carried out on studies and data on this subject and information was used it directly and as inspiration to generate the material. As such the work is part sonification part artistic interpretation. Musically it’s a mix of electronic, experimental, ambient, and drone textures.
Here is a short video showing some of the performance which I posted below. Video was shot by my friend and great director Daniel Eceolaza.
Room recording of a performance at Spektrum in Berlin, 1st September 2016.
This release is the result of an intense period of study, experimentation and creativity (2009-2010). All works were produced while studying a Masters Degree in Music Technology at the Digital Media and Arts Research Centre at the University of Limerick, Ireland.
These pieces reflect my interest in having a meaningful interaction with technology in performance. Source material for the most part is field recordings that fall into 2 categories; urban and rural. These opposite sound worlds are probed and manipulated to explore a possible dialog or meeting point, and to also subvert their context. Similar to the discussion about “what is noise”, the beauty of this output is open to opinion and this material is part of that discussion.
I wish to thank Dr. Robert Sazdov, Dr. Kerry Hagen, and Jurgen Simpson for their time, expertise, and encouragement, the experience was transformational.
