DUMPF EDITION – SEGMOD CD RELEASE AND TALK
Friday September 20th, 7 p.m. KM28, Karl-Marx-Str. 28, 12043 Berlin
Segmod is a non-standard sound synthesis that embraces the discrete nature of digital sound. All sounds created with Segmod result from the concatenation of simple periodic waveforms, such as sine, triangle, and square waves. The sixteen contributing composers have employed a vast array of different compositional, aesthetic, and technological strategies, ranging from inaudible sounds, to neural networks, chaotic functions, careful micro-montages, and analysis-resynthesis techniques. While the results differ widely in sound, all lead back to the idea that synthesis can be seen as a form of composition.
The collected compositions are released on my label DUMPF Edition and will be presented at KM28. The event will feature eight live contributions and a panel discussion that will address the sound synthesis and materiality of the digital. The composers‘ contributions take up the Segmod synthesis process and develop various settings that encompass group improvisation as well as live-electronic solo sets, and performatively explore the material originally created for the release.
