Seminar by Georgia Kalodiki

Title: 3rd Music Seminar by Georgia Kalodiki - Seminar of music composition for instruments and electronics using contemporary electronic sound processing electronics, investigating the relations between harmonic and non-harmonic spectra
Speaker: Georgia Kalodiki
Date & Time: 19/05/2016 - 17:00-19:00 (Dept. Music Studies room 302)
Language: Greek

Short Description:

During this seminar I present and discuss several aspects of my ongoing research at the Music department of Ionio University (Thesis: Composing works for instruments and electronics investigating the relations between harmonic and non-harmonic spectra’)
Fields for discussion and analysis:

- Electronic sound processing and degree of identification of the sound source (instrument identity)

- Search for geometrical symmetries not attached to the traditional approach of the vertical and horizontal axis that characterize the exposition of sound events

- Studying the way of perception of sound events according to empirical reality

- Conceptual approach of abstraction as a degree of harmonic subtraction leading to noise.

- Electronic sound processing of human voice and maintenance of meaning

- Relations between harmonic and non harmonic spectra
