Spiral Voice Gustavo Chab [guschab]

A voice from the past come to the present as a Spiral in my mind. This voice is a brief chant in Ladino of my grandfather that emerge like a Spiral in the composition. This excerpt of audio was taken from a video of my family. This work tries to combine sounds that are related with “the voice of Sefarad” (past) and sounds of the present that sometimes come to my mind and appear in form of repetition with punctual sounds. Mixing sounds that appear in different manners trying to go in form of evolution like a Spiral. The sounds “of the present” mainly are made and created with Modular Synthesis, different kind of systems like Buchla 200e in my residency at EMS Elektronmusikstudion 2018 (the centre for Swedish electroacoustic music and sound-art), and others machines. Exploring the possibilities of this Instruments trying to make flexible as a poetic expression and mixing then inside the atmosphere of the piece.
