Panic Vera Ivanova

Panic stands on the border between “serious” electro-acoustic music and its exaggeration. It reflects the way of living in today’s metropolis with its rush hours, lack of time and noise pollution, its everyday stress and loneliness. The result — panic.

The initial material of Panic is the filtered beginning of my Night Music for large ensemble. The first two bars repeat throughout the piece, each time transformed through different filters and plug-ins, disappearing in the end, leaving pulsating sine waves as a shadow.

The main sources of the piece are graphic patterns used as filters for the Metasynth software, transforming graphic images into sound objects and filters.
