Acousmonium at ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany, 2013

Program note:

This piece is part of a research project titled “composing music based on carpet designs” that I carried out during my Masters study at the Institute of Sonology. In this piece, I tried to apply some prominent features of carpets in the process of making music. For instance, the way that multilayered networks of design in a carpet structure a unified complex texture. Another important aspect of Gereh II inspired by carpets is (a) symmetric spatial strategies in shaping the 8-channel material. An earlier version of the piece premiered in June 2013 during The Next Generation festival at ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany.
