Recordings / Compositions
Here a few examples of Genetic Choir music. Put on your headphones, lean back and get lost…
About the pieces:
In general, the Genetic Choir does not make musical agreements about the score of their compositions beforehand. The pieces start from nothing and from the specific silence of the space we’re in.
On a few occasions (here only in Composition 1104202, with a collaborative thanks to Michael Fischer), we do define certain musical material that we are interested in and therefore, the composition will gravitate around that type of material. On other occasions, we perform graphic scores or decide to read a painting as a graphic score as you can hear with Composition 1205052 – Ixion.
You can leave comments per piece, and even per specific section of a piece via soundcloud: Just click on the title of the piece and you’ll be directed to soundcloud.com where the music is hosted. Pieces are published under a Creative Commons licence (attribution/share alike).
Some recording conditions were poor, but this is part of the game as we often perform on specific locations, not only in concert halls. Thanks to Dennis Maij (www.terra-preta.nl) en Yinske Silva (www.metstem.nl) for helping out on several occasions with their recording equipment and expertise.
