Works for Listening (2017-)
5th Order Ambisonics Works
2.5 to 60 min
Works for Listening is a series of electro-acoustic works developed at Notam (NO), MISC (LT) and EMS (SE). All the works are made in 5th order ambisonics, but have been presented in other formats as well and are the most played works by Tine Surel Lange. The works are numbered from No. 1 to No. 13 (still ongoing).
In Works for Listening there is a strong focus on listening aesthetics and our psychological categorization of sound. Surrounding sound environments are created with material taken from everyday life: Organic sound sources to a varying degree reconstructed by tone, rhythm, timbre, and layers. The sonic material in Works for Listening appears as physical and tactile, and often abstracted from their original state. With Works for Listening the composer hopes to create inspiration for increased listening experiences in life.
Surel Lange’s work with ambisonics is based on mono sound sources (field recordings, mostly done with contact microphones) placed in space where the development in the material (pitch, filters, frequencies, dynamics) are connected and emphasized with vertical movement.
