About the Event
050719 BY REFERENCE is a generative 8-channel sound installation by Kenneth Kirschner and Daniel Neumann that uses recordings of instrumental sounds from an unreleased Alarm Will Sound sample library.
In a truly collaborative fashion, Kirschner & Neumann developed an approach to creating new musical material from a massive, unfinished and abandoned collection of extended technique recordings created by Alarm Will Sound. Kirschner first produced an underlying harmonic structure that both artists used as a reference in creating their individual sounds for the piece. The reference track was then removed and both sound pools were joined. Neumann developed an algorithmic software player to mix and spatialize the sounds, using chance procedures to create an unpredictable and continuously evolving generative composition.
The installation was first presented at the Mizzou International Composers Festival 2019.
