Shimmer Oded Geizhals, Perkussion for cymbals and live electronics Omri Abram, Elektronik (2019)
3 cymbals, one performer – what potential is bottled up in this seemingly sparse situa-tion?
This piece attempts to draw the audience into the incredibly rich sonic possibilities inher-ent to these instruments – both figuratively and literaly.
In a manner which is relatively new to me, the use of space – the mapping of the cymbals‘ sounds onto the multichannel diffusion – is perhaps the central compositional element in this piece.
Other, more or less subtle, electronic means serve to variously emphasize, enrich, distort or question the original sounding material and to emphasize the ambiguity of our percep-tion.
This piece was developed in close collaboration with Oded Geizhals and is dedicated to him.
