Knittel, Krzysztof: Trash&LE 



Basic information



  • Program notes: 

    Trash & LE

    This composition is based on improvisation of two performers–composers: Wojciech Błażejczyk and Krzysztof Knittel. Both are using homemade instruments and digital live sound transformation. Błażejczyk plays electric guitar and a few objectophones – other words they are everyday objects, used as acoustic instruments: old, useless clothes dryer, broken vacuum flask, old toy-mandolin. Their sound is transformed live in MAX environment.
    Knittel plays square midi harp and 4 monochords – controllers built by computer scientist and musician Peter Sych – the operations of these harp and monochords are based on infrared beams. All sounds (recorded and edited by the composer) are triggered from the computer memory by light beams interrupting. Moreover, Knittel uses for sound transformations MAX environment and REM processor built by scientist Michal Silski. This audio modifier combines wide range of DSP capabilities with 3D gyroscopic gesture control in live performance. Usually musician's left hand moves the sound in loudness and panorama space, while right hand controls parameters like pitch and looping.
    Trash & LE was created in November 2016.
    Duration: ab. 12 minutes.
    Enclosed two versions of video recording of the Trash & LE performance.
