Davidovsky Synchronisms #12
Concert: 10 May 2007 --
Presented by: KurtStallmann
Shepherd School of Music, Rice University, Rice Electronic Music Labs
Houston -- USA

Pulizter-prize-winning composer Mario Davidovsky was recently commissioned by SEAMUS and a consortium of American universities to compose two new pieces in his famous Synchronisms series: Synchronisms #11 (for contrabass) and Synchronisms #12 (for bass clarinet). Davidovsky completed the electronic portion of Synchronism #12 at REMLabs in collaboration with composer Kurt Stallmann.

Davidovsky wanted to create an electronics part derived largely from samples of the clarinet, bass clarinet, and piano, so he and Stallman used Kyma to analyze the samples for spectral content and to develop/modify spectral data for resynthesis. They also used several other Kyma tools to manipulate the samples and generate synthesized material. According to Stallman, "Davidovsky enjoyed hearing 'Kyma' through the speakers each time it started up and grew attached to that sound icon."
