Back Where I Started – Michael Importico

***PLEASE USE HEADPHONES*** This is a sound collage of a fictional journey by car. It was created from a field recording of my car, and mixed with other found sounds. With this work, I wanted to explore a place moving through space. I was inspired by the works of Bill Fontana who focuses on the…

Sound Collage Project – Adam

For my found sound project, I am submitting my concerto for piano and electronics called Unixos. I have spent the last two weeks rigorously creating the electronic backing tracks (and live effects) for the performance and have prepared a full demonstration the piece. These backing tracks use “found sound” and “found media” extensively by both…

Sound Collage – Think Breath

The preparation phase would introduce the listeners into the world of breaths by presenting breath types and trying to form a language with breath, and then move on to a vocal guided meditation.…

For example, soft breath = calm, a long exhale = relieve, with combinations of inhale, exhale and silence, the expressions change. If we put breath in a musical context, a…

As such, thanks to a helpful tip from Abby, I decided to pursue a collage of the most notable repertoire of the violin throughout history—both solo and ensemble work—with a particular focus…

Basically, my proposal is a real-time algorithmic composition program designed to accompany live performances in which the the frequency spectrum of the performance is used as input and a library of collected sounds is used as output. The program will continually parse the incoming spectrum into 25 bands and measure the amplitude of each band.…

Sound Collage Proposal Draft

Sounds and Concept   I want to use breaths sounds. It’s almost a noise, meanwhile contains so much information. For example, soft breath = calm, a long exhale = relieve, with combinations of inhale, exhale and silence, the expressions change. If we put breath in a musical context, a short and deep inhale could indicate…
