Black Space

Zappi, Victor; Ronen, Oren

Black Space is a solo performance that presents highly correlated sonic and visual elements. The piece revolves around the manipulation of acoustic qualities of sound propagation and reverberation in a physical model, that is capable of both synthesizing and rendering sound waves. The performer gradually populates the black space that stretches across the surface of his instrument with sound sources, creating layered textures and percussive sounds that get trapped and resonate in di erent 2D shapes and materials. As the piece evolves, the performer explores the acoustic e ects arising as he alters the physical properties of these materials and the shapes these sounds exist in. Black Space was composed for a novel audio/visual digital musical instrument, whose name is anonymized for the submission.
