Coral Furtivo

Recording of the final rehearsal for "Coral Furtivo", a show with Ricardo Jacinto and Yaw Tembe at Teatro do Bairro Alto (TBA), Lisbon. The trio formed in 2019, when TBA invited us to open their concert series. Yaw plays extended trompet, and Ricardo plays extended cello. I play the zither and the AG#3 software, which processes audio samples - including sounds from the cello and the trompet - based on pitch analysis from the zither sound. Additionally, i use the light percussion instrument, which includes an audio-generator connected to a light sensor attached to a stroboscope.

I played amplified wires streched in space and the zither; the AG#3 software, which processed audio samples based on their input sound. And an audio-generator to produce beats, through a light sensor attached to a stroboscope. John Klima played a long wire streched in space, capturing its magnetic resonances. Tiago Sousa played piano and Diana Combo percussion.
