Case 1

Swish & Break (Geschlagene-Natur)

Maurizio Goina, Pietro Polotti & Sarah Taylor

Barcelona, SMC 2010, 7th Sound and Music Computing Conference
22 July 2010, 22.00h: Concert around Freesound
Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Sala Polivalent


The work is based on the EGGS project - Elementary Gestalts for Gesture Sonification. In EGGS, sound is conceived as a representation of basic gesture elements. The sound is meant as an effect of the choreographic gesture and its expressiveness. The system becomes a sort of choreophone.
The sounds employed in this performance were retrieved from the Freesound project by means of specific keywords: Swish, Nature and Break.










Case 2

un-pLugged pLoden, a Ligament Lento

Sarah Taylor, Pietro Polotti, Maurizio Goina

International Computer Music Conference 2012, Ljubljana, 10 september 2012

The work is part of a broader project denominated EGGS (Elementary Gestalts for Gesture Sonification). In EGGS, sound is meant as an effect and not as the basis of the choreography. We conceive the system as a sort of "choreophone": an audible representation of the choreographic action. Symmetrically, the body movement is a visualization of sound: the audience does not only listen to sound but also "watches" the sound in a non-cochlear way. The sounds employed in this performance come from the Freesound project (freesound.org) and were retrieved by means of the keywords slowdown, decreasing, braking. The choice of the keywords determines the overall character of the performance. Indeed, the form of the work is a long and progressive deceleration starting from explosive sounds of big slowing down engines, passing through car brakes, train brakes, and ending with delicate, almost intimate, bike braking sounds. The idea is to realize a sonic metaphor of what in economic terms is known as "degrowth", a project for a new life style, which includes ecological as well as social issues, where a bicycle represents actual concerns of mobility today.
