Schmitt is a quadrophonic live-electronic music performance. The piece meant to challenge and explore the relationships between motion, gesture and music in a multi-channel speaker setup. Along with that the narrative of the performance is about overcoming existential crisis, which is translated into a sonic journey. The main symbol is a self-made square wave Schmitt oscillator, which is the sound source throughout the whole piece. The development of the oscillator’s timbre is the transformation of the narrative. The piece is also questioning a certain issue behind using self-made instruments or controllers compared to the use of traditional instruments. It is strongly connected to a reference point (expectation) of how the players gestures on the instrument are coordinated with the sounding outcome.
