Woven Waves

Improvizations with the Roland 100M modular synthesizer, Moog Grandmother, and Echoplex. Composed for 5.1 surround sound and exhibited at the Australian Center for the Moving Image.

Excerpt from Woven Waves, note the full work was designed for a 5.1 Surround Sound listening experience

Utilizing the rich capabilities of the Roland 100M modular synthesizer, Moog Grandmother, and Echoplex, this piece is a departure from my typical compositions, venturing into a more improvisational and generative space. The focus lies on the juxtaposition of simple waveforms, allowing them to intersect and collide, creating an intricate dance of sonic interactions. This approach crafts an organic, fluid soundscape, showcasing the raw potential and harmonious interplay between these instruments.

This was composed for inclusion in the Space Beyond the Screen exhibition, curated by Starlings Spatial Sound Collective.
Notes on the event:

Starlings Spatial Sound Collective, in collaboration with SIAL Sound Studios and RMIT University, present an evening of experimental audio visual and pure sound works using the ACMI Cinema 2 surround speaker system. Each artist will present either a quadraphonic, 5.1 sound or audiovisual work featuring surround sound of up to 10 minutes.

Artists have been given carte blanche to create their vision of what the space beyond the screen means to their practice, resulting in a showcase of the diversity and talent present in the Australian sound art and experimental cinema community. The Space Beyond the Screen celebrates Australia’s sound community by presenting a continuum of sound culture with artists at all stages of their careers – from emerging to more established practitioners, recent RMIT alumni and current RMIT School of Design student works. Spatial sound art is underrepresented in Australia’s arts performance landscape, this project provides artists with the space and scope to experiment with multichannel audio at scale.
