KISS2014 -- “Why are cheetahs becoming extinct?” Trio for Piano, Violin and Kyma: Kiyoung Lee
Ha-Young Park, piano; Lukas Stubenrauch, violin
What is the key to survival and evolution of any organisms?
The “diversity”. Cheetahs are becoming extinct essentially because of that reason, lack of diversity in the genetics.
This “Collaboratory” leads to an unique result and adds diversity in the musical genetics of this piece.
Through the composition and performance of this piece, Kyma will replicate, rearrange and recreate the information received from the performers under a meaningful sequence while preserving its uniqueness, just like in the process of the evolution. Which means that all the sounds heard from the Kyma come from the sound made by the live instruments on the stage, either processed in real-time, or recorded from an earlier point in the performance.
