Sheet Music: Score
Synaesthesia suite : for augmented acoustic violin and track / Kate Moore.
by Kate Moore (2014)
Synaesthesia Suite is a kaleidoscopic concerto for violin and synthesized violin. The synthesizer, created by the composer, is based on a spectral analysis emulating a note of the violin by adding frequencies that correspond to the harmonic series in an ideal proportion. From this a fantasia emerges that is reminiscent of a baroque concerto where the dialogue between solo violin and synthesizer ripieno has a retro sci-fi edge likened to the works of Wendy Carlos.
By embracing the traditions of music from an ancient past steeped in a world view linked directly with the earth, the body and the universe, contemporary values of progress and rationalism become one with a respect for the surrounding environment. By linking historical instrument design, employing instruments such as the violin, with new concepts of alternative performance installation and spatial electroacoustic sound design and sculpture, vivid future possibilities emerge and take shape in unexpected ways that create a dialogue and directions of their own.
