Higher Order Gestalt Fromage

For two T-Sticks and a 3D loudspeaker array. This piece renders a course of reciprocal communications between performers’ embodied intentionality and a computer-driven spatial-sonic ecosystem. While the two T-Stick performers unfold a musical discourse on the continuum between grouped and ungrouped sounds, the duo and the ecosystem show various types of cause-effect relationships in between. The performers-ecosystem interactions draw a hierarchical 3D mental construct of a piece of cheese, thanks to our gestalt grouping capabilities. 

Higher Order Gestalt Fromage has been premiered on February 13th, 2020 at Live@CIRMMT Composers, MMR, Montreal (Canada).
