Discussion with guest researcher Rita Torres
ZKM_Lecture Hall, 6 pm, admission free
→ Information auf Deutsch
Rita Torres, currently guest researcher at ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics will be presenting her new project "The microphone as a compositional element". This project is centered around multiphonics and upper bi-tones on the classical guitar.
It aims at investigating, by using different microphones/positions and guitarists/guitars,
the palette of sonorities they offer when amplified, and divulging the results to the scientific community.
Another goal is to create a greater interest among composers in writing for the guitar by
conveying the scientific results in language suited to this community – this information will also
serve as a practical reference for guitarists. New pieces for guitar will be composed by
the author and by invited composers as part of the strategy of implementation of the results,
which will be tested in a public concert.
