Typhlotic Impressions Louis Thompson-Amadei

Typhlotic Impressions is an Acousmatic piece intended for standard ITU 5.1 configuration playback. The composition is built upon entirely original recordings of traditional and non-traditional instruments. A rich medley of harmonic and inharmonic sonic items are demonstrated as both distinct and blended throughout, using precisely shaped articulations and gestures that immerse the listener by manipulating anticipation. Motifs that vary delicately each time resounded are revealed throughout and act as the compositional pillars of the piece. The conceptual aspect of Typhlotic Impressions stems from the composer’s evocation of ‘blind wandering’, where the aural sense acts as the primary sense of perception and interpretation of time and space.
