Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The summer of 2018 was rather hot. The cities I visited that were normally a pleasant summer temperature, were melting. Is this the sign of summers to come? Experiencing how excessive heat can lead to both mirages and a state of delirium, Urban Melt transports an ordinary, outdoor table tennis game in Park Palais Meran, Graz, to a crazier world on the other side of the mirage. This work is one in a series of pieces that visits everyday ’normal’ sound scenes and explores ways in which we can evoke and provoke a new awareness of environments we easily ignore. Supported by the Norwegian Composers’ Remuneration Fund (Komponistenes Vederlagsfond).

  • Technical specs: 

    • The category states that speakers are normally positioned as an 8.1 system in a semi-circular array, but that there is also the possibility of some upper reinforcement from a trio of hanging speakers. I can provide for either option (elevation would be nice!).

    • Computer and audio interface for multichannel playback.
