ABOUT THE PIECE

Music from a dampening sine function is one part audience-interactive and one part installation. Audience members are encourage to tour the installation as part of a sound journey throughout the experience. The piece, as the title suggests, is built from sampling a dampening sine function at certain granularity to derive constantly changing time values. Of which, these time values are represented by musical materials that have been stretched and compressed – leading to a sense of varying temporal experience in combination with the site-specific acoustical response to the defined locative listening point.

Audience members are also welcomed to ask questions and try out the instruments after the piece. These 7 instruments have been built by Christopher Clarke from the ground up with spare parts and electrical components as part of an instrumentarium that he is building towards.

This performance is produced in collaboration with YST composition students.
