the 100-year anniversary of the Reunification does not go quiet. In any case, it is marked in the tower at the Owner Bavnehøj with a sound work by composer Wayne Siegel, who among other things is known for the sound installation 'Outside-In' at The Black Diamond in Copenhagen.
With great artistic hands, he was allowed to unfold his ideas about a different work of sound art to the traditional tower.
- Usually you think of music as something a person has composed or performed. But in this work it is instead a computer, there has been a set of rules or algorithms, and these rules are combined the short harmonisektioner of 10-20 seconds to klangstrukturer and whole compositions, says Wayne Siegel in a press release.
- It is the rules that make your computer not just create noise; but they make also that the music is created continuously, is unique, and never repeats itself. In the computer world is sounding numbers, and these numbers can be combined in infinitely many ways, continues Siegel.
the Work is called 'Signal' and refers to højens history from viningetiden and forward to the 1800s, where the man lighted a fire, when the enemy approached, the so-called bavneblus.
'Signal' will be officially opened with a world premiere, Sunday 30. august. However, it has since genforeningsdagen 15. June has been possible to hear the work in a pre-release copy of the Owner Bavnehøj.
