It will be a performance for electro-acoustic musicsuch as sound – noise production inin the interdisciplinary genre.Algorithmiccomposition gives many ideas of interactive sound, especially while we are in nature. It is not only interaction between playing musical instrument and nature environment, but also with audience as a media which could be generated sounds at the same outdoor circumstance. The type of project would bea music performance, and the contents of the message would be for sharing, collaborating, relationship, convergence and so on.
In the relationship between human and nature, I compare each sound with color, fabric, food or so forth. Then I can relate these life-objects to the musical materials with any of the five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing. The role of instrument in my compositions is to organically combined and highlighted specific characters, which enhances their own cohesion in the ensemble.
I apply my knowledge that audible sense will naturally bring out different visual imagery in each person’s mind. This leads me to linguistics and psychoanalysis for developingat most in this compositional idea.
