TWO CHANNELS ELECTROACOUSTIC COMPOSITION, 2011
Title is a mix between two ancient greek words: ekpyrosis and phonos (sound).
The first term, in Stoic philosophy means “conversion to fire”, and is the periodic destruction
(and then rebirth) of the cosmos: fire destroys everything, but also releases the energy to generate a new world.
The basic idea of this work is to take an object, in this case a common coffee can,
to give it life by allowing it to emit sound (surrounding it with an elastic rubber - see picture below),
and then to explore every acoustic possibility I can get from this instrument, till the ones that can cause the death
(breaking) of it.
Then, the tile: Ekphonosis: sounding possibility can give new life to the object, but this is going to waste and destroy it.
