Amproprification #7: Weiss / Weisslich 17c, Peter Ablinger

Finished 2017
for snare drum, noise and automated amplification (2 performers)
duration: 3'

“Amproprifications” is a series of pieces for performers and electronics. The electronics consist of automated amplification. No additional sound is being produced. The parts of the performers consist in the performance of scores by other composers. One specific score is performed for each piece in the series. Not a single note of the respective piece's text is being altered, nothing is added, nothing is omitted, nothing is being changed in any way.

The automated amplification layer of "Amproprification #7: Weiss / Weisslich 17c, Peter Ablinger" is derived from the volume envelope of a spoken recording of this very text, lasting exactly forty seconds. You will listen to this text twice: First, in the form of a digitally analysed volume envelope of the recording, applied to the volume envelope of the snare drum roll that constitutes the first half of Ablinger's piece. Second, as a manually drawn copy of a graphical print of the recording's volume envelope, translated back into digital sound data. It is applied to the volume envelope of the white noise, constituting the second half of Ablinger's piece.
