Paisagens Londrinenses 1 Guto Caminhoto

Paisagens Londrinenses 1 tries to represent oniric soundscapes where real and imaginary co-exist, using sounds whose source (natural or synthetic) remains nebulous. This piece was composed using recorded soundscapes from Londrina city (Brazil): cathedral bells, children playing, cicadas and other insects, birds, storms∑ The recorded sounds were processed with Csound, wich was also used to synthesize other sounds. Processing techniques used were mainly granulation of sampled sounds, linear predictive coding, phase vocoder, subtractive synthesis. Paisagens Londrinenses 1 was premiered during the Next Wave Festival eXstatic Project (Melbourne, Australia). Paisagens Londrinenses 1 was finalist of 2º Concorso Internazionale Di Composizione Elettronica “Pierre Schaeffer”, 1999.
