Visualisations of the Amproprification Series

“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 visualisations of the series are direct transformations of the amplification tracks, enabling the observer to “read” the construction in their own time. Although the visualisations could never serve as a source to reconstruct the amplification tracks, they do constitute a way of examining the respective composition alone, without listening to the underlying piece of music as well. A visualisation is therefore to be thought of as another instance of the respective piece. The graphics are presented as high quality diasec prints in very small limited editions.

"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."

The visualisation shows both the digitally analysed envelope (top), the text (in the middle) and the manually drawn copy (bottom).
