Modular strategies in shaping reflections and space: An excerpt of one of the lectures prepared for the Lindblad Studio, Göteborg, Sweden
by Roland Kuit.
Electronic Music composers not only create sounds for their compositions. They create the space where in these sounds are placed, or are even moving as well.
In this lecture the concept of space will be (re-)defined especially for modular synthesis. Reflections are positional essentials in creating space. How space can be thought of as an indispensable element of music, and with the kinds of approaches that emerge when space is dealt with from the start producing a sound work. As this is a stereo broadcasting, this lecture can not extend more than two channels. Part of this lecture will be explained by use of very down to earth examples in witch modules and their connections are explained and followed by a more elaborated examples as musical sentences. Maybe this hour is a bit technical but it gives a good insight about decision making in electronic music. Electronic music is not just about pushing a few knobs, it is about creating concepts.
