Enclave 9: Call & Response | EVOL Opus17aSlimeVariation#5

Mar 19, 2015

Preview 27th March
Continues to 17th May

Post rave algorithmic computer music duo EVOL have made a new work for Call & Response’s 13 speaker immersive sound system. Opus17aSlimeVariation#5 is a very free adaptation of Hanne Darboven’s ‘Opus 17a’ (part of her Wunschkonzert, 1984). It is part of a series of seventeen adaptations called Opus17aSlimeVariations that began in 2014 and have been presented both live and as an installation, but using different sound materials each time.

IT’S FREEE! Please note the following opening times for the installation.

EVOL’s approach to the original score focuses mainly on time manipulation. By playing around with note durations and repetitions, the grid of four note patterns that make up Darboven’s piece becomes a very different sonic experience. Much in the same way that they tackled Ligeti’s iconic ‘Continuum’ in a series of pieces (they call them “approximations” rather than “covers”), their version is both a tribute to the original as well as an experiment on distorted temporality.

Opus17aSlimeVariations was originally developed in collaboration with British artist and programmer Guy Birkin.
