Electroacoustic

Die Elektroflöte

The following was composed at the University of Montreal (UdeM).

It is an electroacoustic piece played live with an EWI USB and a Line6 FBV.

Presented at the 2013 edition of the biannual eBuzz concert.

The piece is a semi improvisation with every new section being triggered either with electroacoustic sound clips or changes in timbre.

I have programmed the whole thing in PureData.

The system is a combination of the Wallander Instruments Wivi Band VST running through Turnado and sound clips triggered with the FBV foot switches.

The sound is played in real time with an EWI USB and modulated with the help of the FBV’s expression pedal.

Falknor

The following was composed at the University of Montreal (UdeM).

It is an electroacoustic piece comprised of processed sounds from a violin, an Irish whistle, pot pans and a train.

Presented at the 2011 edition of the biannual eBuzz concert.

The piece was initially named after a fictional dog I had come up with for an audio Space Opera. It ended up being about my dog’s passing, her departure symbolized by the train leading to the song’s epilogue.

The prologue kicks off with impressions of sounds, like a dog would have, some harmonious but mostly dissonant and in turmoil like her life was.

The resonances are then used to reflect the passed piece,deconstructing as the mind fades to nothingness.

J-NAUT

The following was composed at the University of Montreal (UdeM).

It is an electroacoustic piece comprised of processed sounds from a file cabinet, claves, pot pans and a water pipe.

Presented at the 2011 edition of the biannual eBuzz concert.

The piece is short for “Jeune noir avec une tuque” meaning young black man with a toque.

It is meant to represent a young urban man with a sense of rythm. The urban setting being represented with metallic household objects and the toque in the title suggesting the Quebecker culture of the young man.
