Sonic Matters (2018)

Sonic Matters is a collection of five octophonic electroacoustic pieces that are composed and performed using only Sonic Matter. The pieces are structured improvisations, thus offering a unique listening experience every time they are performed. Each composition focuses on both a specific ‘matter’ of sound and a module of Sonic Matter, thereby demonstrating the strengths of the system in composing and performing music. The sound material used in the pieces includes everyday objects such as coins and bottles, instruments, and human voice.

The audios below are recorded during the first public concert, performed in the Sonic Arts Lab at the University of Calgary on June 14, 2018. They are mixed down to stereo for visitor convenience; the original 8-channel versions are also available. Please contact me if you are interested in presenting them at your electroacoustic concert, festival or class.
