Based on the iPHONE application Srutibox by Henry Lowengard
Environmental streams from Locus Sonus
Concept by Pauline Oliveros
Droniphonia has polytonal drones continually morphing timbres, volumes and fundamentals moving in space. Networked musicians (Belfast, Banff and Troy NY) listen to the drones and develop gradually overlapping improvised sounds and phrases – first solo and then between two or three players at a time in a slowly growing density and texture. Different musical characters appear unexpectedly from time to time out of no where on a one time basis. Finally all players weave their way in and out of the droneophony sharing the unknown finale.
The 2009 Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music takes place in SARC, the Harty Room and the Whitla Hall, at Queen’s Unversity Belfast.
