Live Musical Performance
Performed by Ere Lievonen (FI/NL)
The Baroque Harpsichord was a paradox of expressivity: it can simulate multiple instruments at once but its keys is essentially on/off switches incapable of responding to the dynamics of touch.
In this live performance for harpsichord and 1-bit synthesizers, the historical instrument confronts its digital heir in a short-circuit that bristles with complexity and beauty. Neither fully competition nor collaboration, “Dual Synthesis” blurs man and machine in a dense field of melody and rhythm that pushes the physical and conceptual limits of their kinship.
