SOUND X SOUND is a series of works 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.
In 2016 the series came to an end as 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)
The aim of the SOUND X SOUND series is to get the instruments to exceed their own familiar sound, and multiplying and layering the sound does exactly that. The individual musical instrument and the individual musician is dissolved and the sound reappears in another form.
A sonic as well as human synthesis.
