 Eastern Praxis

Eastern Praxis is an interactive live graphic score represented in real-time through symbols and free-line notations.  The graphic notations are inspired by Korean traditional clothing (national costume) called “Hanbok”’s color and design pattern. The four live instruments were improvised in this work: cello, a traditional Korean bamboo flute called “Danso,” a Tibetan Singing bowl, and violin.  This work imagines the sound of the ancient east by combining both western and eastern traditional instruments.  Western instruments such as the cello and violin are played with an eastern flair recalling the angst-ridden soul of the east (“한”  恨) while interweaving with the romantic western musical style. The electro-acoustic performance of live instruments creates myriad sound constellations at the intersection between east and west, modern and ancient.    All live instruments are accompanied by fixed media electronic composition and live interactive processing.  (The programming of the patch received partial technical and programming support from Hans Tammen and Martin Ritter)
