Alessandro De Caro
Based for several years in Turin (Italy), where he pursued his studies in New Media Theory and Techniques at the Arts, Music and Performance Faculty, Alessandro focuses on the exploration of electronic music in its different forms (alternative, ambient, experimental) collaborating with artists of diverse backgrounds on projects where sound plays a fundamental role: multimedia installations, video art, web art.
The piece I present is a new version of the concluding part of a larger work, Kirielle.
It draws on some features of ancient choral music and places these within the contemporary context. The title of the piece is in French as this allows for a variety of possible meanings: litany, complaint, series, sequence. In general terms, I sought to grasp the atmosphere of choral music through the generation of synthesized sounds.
From the point of view of composition, I developed the piece using musical notation based on models from mathematics and physics (such as set theory or the Ising model), suggesting to the audience listening and interpreting the piece a sonic structure existing in space as well as in time.
