Earth Sample Synthesis

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Earth Sample Synthesis is a durational, installation based and (eventually) sculptural composition for earth samples, field recordings and synthetic sound that borrows in various ways from the work of Douglas Huebler, Pauline Oliveros and Robert Smithson.

Slowly evolving in realtime an otherwise hermetic circuit comprising playback of field recordings and sound synthesis is opened up to the earth, to environmental contingencies through the insertion of earth samples into the electronic circuit driving the piece.

A vide lecture presenting the artistic and conceptual context for the work was presented at the conference, as well as a performance of the piece on a reduced scale due to lockdown measures in place at the time.
