‘Vertigo’ is an audiovisual composition from the third-year course in electronic music at the conservatory of music, ‘Santa Cecilia’. Shared with Luana Lunetta, this piece’s instruments include transverse flute, clarinet, and concrete materials.
The music composition includes the presence of aeolian sounds: flutes (in particular blowing and tapping), clarinets (multiphonic), combined with wing beats, sighs and samples of pre-recorded concrete materials modified with resonant filters, slowed down in speed, played in reverse, edited and reversed, produced with various effects finalising the listening in a continuous sensation of suspension and vertigo, almost a dream, a vortex.
All sounds have been processed with Ableton Live. The electronic sounds were generated by processing instrument recordings in Max/MSP and were mixed & mastered in Ableton Live. Video and video FX were composed, processed and Max/MSP Jitter. Thanks to Mitch Martinez for HD Free Stock Footage.
