Premiere of Mise en abîme by Altera-Shock in Riga
Mise en abîme for ensemble and electronics is going to get its premiere, on 30th of October at Riga | Latvia. The performance is based on the collaboration of two modern music ensembles, Art-i-shock and Altera Veritas.
Mise en abîme, is a term used in visual arts to describe a formal technique of placing a copy of an image within itself, often in a way that suggests an infinitely recurring sequence. A common way of experiencing this effect is by standing between two mirrors, seeing as a result an infinite reproduction of one’s image. In this piece I try to imitate this phenomenon in the field of sound. Fragments of music are repeated many times, each time slightly distorted, in order to create perceptually the same effect.
