On Varosha
Installation: 13 Nov 2010
By: YannisKyriakides

Premiered at Cineac Sonore: November Music
http://www.kyriakides.com/

On Varosha, a new multimedia work premiered on November 13, 2010, Yannis Kyriakides used Kyma for sound processing, morphing, stretching, and granulation. The material is derived from an interactive installation that used live video to track the XY position of people entering the installation and used that information to control the scrub-point of the granulation. The sensation was that of walking through frozen voices and fragments of 1970's Turkish and Greek pop music, creating a kind of topography of different voices mapped to the space. If you would walk in one direction at a particular speed you might hear the voice at its original speed and direction; if you would stop at any point then you would hear a frozen moment of the voice. Kyriakides describes it as "a simple concept but with powerful results." He then created a 'composed' version of the installation using a voice to replace the body. In this version, the voice is a 'tour guide' who leads the listener through the frozen sounds of the abandoned holiday resort of Varosha.
