Rhythmic theory | Fragmented voice | Conceptional dance music
The Bachelor thesis of Lukas Truniger (Music and Media program) revolves around three topics: voice, theory and electronic dance music. The connections between the three aspects form the basis for the composition of electronic pieces. The voice as sound material is highly alienated and specifically used for vocalising individual texts. Markov chains are used as an algorithmic composition technique and to fragment the texts. An EP was produced with four tracks, which were presented as part of the Prozess & Reflexion [Process & Reflection] exhibition on 25 July 2013 in Düsseldorf's Betonbox in the form of listening stations. In the exhibition, the texts of the respective piece were seen as generative visuals. They were produced together with the Basel programmer Fabian Frei.
