Valence Ilyaa Ghafouri

Gesture and Surface. The manipulation of synthetic sonic materials has induced them with different gestures and textures. From the grain of a sound to the heart of a movement, Valence explores different depths of the sound objects it orchestrates. The form is inspired by the principal energy levels of an atom. As the piece unfolds, we cross through different energetic planes, separated by short articulations. These stases stage distinct synthetic spaces in which matter deploys without any directional vectors. However, each static section is characterized by a unique degree of stability.
