Luc Vitk - Environment

  • Cassette + Digital Album

    Luc Vitk - Environment
    Environment (2021) is a piece for one performer, singing and playing the accordion, harmonica, and feedback. The piece is based on twelve graphic scores, which are visual studies of a movement from the center to the edges. With the accordion, harmonica, and feedback, I create an environment for the voice to come in and perform the shapes and trajectories of the graphic scores. In the piece, I search for resonant frequencies, combination tones, and beatings, which are activated by the voice in relationship with the instrumental environment and the architecture of the specific space. Out 11/28

about

Environment (2021) is a piece for one performer, singing and playing the accordion, harmonica, and feedback. The piece is based on twelve graphic scores, which are visual studies of a movement from the center to the edges. With the accordion, harmonica, and feedback, I create an environment for the voice to come in and perform the shapes and trajectories of the graphic scores. In the piece, I search for resonant frequencies, combination tones, and beatings, which are activated by the voice in relationship with the instrumental environment and the architecture of the specific space.

Environment was also remade as a piece for an ensemble and orchestra, and the excerpts are included in tracks 3 and 7.

For this album, each of the twelve scores of the piece is recorded in a different location with a wide range of recording techniques and equipment to bring its characteristics into the piece.
