The Emergent Sonorities group was formed in January 2010, as part of a Digital Media Studio Project based at the University of Edinburgh. The group’s aim was to investigate an eco-systemic approach to making music, creating a system that had an inherent feedback between the input, the environment, the audio processing and the output, structurally coupling all of the elements of the composition in a network of relationships. The project is based on the ideas of Agostino Di Scipio
In Phase 1 of the project the group created and performed two pieces by composer, Agostino Di Scipio, Audible Ecosystemics n.3a (Background Noise Study) and Audible Ecosystemics n.3b (Vocal Study).
In Phase 2 of the project the group explored their own interpretation of an audible ecosystem. This phase culminated in a live performance of the work as part of the Dialogues concert series at Inspace, Edinburgh.
We have performed Audible Ecosystemics n3.a (Background Noise Study) at BOOM! III, a concert in Alison House, Edinburgh on 03.03.10. We have also performed n.3a (Background Noise Study) as a public installation at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh on 21.04.10.
