Experiments in Entropy features three diverse works which explore electronic, and electronically processed, sounds. The SElectOR ensemble performs electronic improvisations, featuring both synthesized and electroacoustic sounds. Anqi Liu’s work for modular synthesizer invites the listener to experience the spectral nuances and microcosmic spaces created by her live-patching of the instrument. Andres Gutiérrez’s work Auscultation explores the sonic qualities of different materials (such as metal and cardboard boxes) which are amplified and excited through contact microphones and speakers, and then projected spatially to create an immersive sonic experience.
