SOUND X SOUND is a series of compositions by Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard, where each piece is an exploration of one single instrument that is multiplied. The SOUND X SOUND series consists of 7 recordings all composed in the period 2014-2015 and released in 2016/2017.
In the end the SOUND X SOUND series was released as a limited box set edition containing 7x7"vinyls + booklet with texts by TR Kirstein, Sven Schlijper-Karssenberg & Katrine Ring.
The handmade box set contains the following recordings:
SOUND X SOUND - MUSIC FOR 8 RECORDERS (2014)
SOUND X SOUND - MUSIC FOR 30 CHROMATIC TUNERS (2015)
SOUND X SOUND - MUSIC FOR 9 PIANOS (2015)
SOUND X SOUND - MUSIC FOR 15 SHAKERS (2015)
SOUND X SOUND - MUSIC FOR 18 CLARINETS (2015)
SOUND X SOUND - MUSIC FOR 16 TRIANGLES (2015)
SOUND X SOUND - MUSIC FOR 10 HI-HATS (2015)
Løkkegaard’s aim is to get the instruments to exceed their own familiar sound by multiplying and layering the sound; - attempts of dissolving the individual musical instrument and the individual musician and to make it reappear in another form.
A sonic as well as human synthesis.
