Valerio Sannicandro: Ius Lucis
Fri, 16.01.2009, 8 pm CET
"Ius Lucis" (2006/2007) is a composition by Valerio Sannicandro for two instrumental ensembles in two distinct, electronically connected spaces. The music by the ensembles will be played into the other space, where the ensemble is not located, in real-time transformation and thereby electronically processed, live. The listeners move between the two spaces thus hearing different versions of the music, leading to overlapping memories. The arrangement of Ensemble 1 (stereophonic assembly) and Ensemble 2 (musicians are placed in the audience) enables "orchestrated spatialization." The musicians are connected directly with the loudspeakers, their sounds converted electronically and reproduced. The sound moves constantly between the concert spaces: the spatial acoustics itself thus becomes a defining moment.
