MEDUSA

Published on May 10, 2016 | Filed under: MEDUSA |

Series of concerts and concert-installations using the Medusa system. This electroacoustic system aims for a “sonic transfiguration” of the cello´s body when in contact with the place hosting its performance. This project proposes a nomad instrumental device designed to accommodate a solo improvisatory discourse which incorporates specific sonic characteristics (aural architecture, soundscape flow) of the place where it is installed and performed, addressing questions of site-specificity both in the installation setup as well as in the musical performance. Medusa is designed to support a concert situation that “feeds” a stand alone, interactive installation.
