[Compositions 2019]


Composition 2019.01 (Untitled)

Composition 2019.01 (Untitled) consists of two layers: five short sinewave-based sounds pitched at C3; and a continuous tone at C1.



Composition 2019.02 (Untitled)

Composition 2019.02 (Untitled) is sparsely textured - and consists of a small number of repeating sounds that fade in and out of each other. Distortion has been added to create a level of timbral complexity. 


Composition 2019.03 (Untitled)

Composition 2019.03 (Untitled) was produced digitally using FM and analog modelling synthesis - and consists of a small number of repeating sounds separated by periods of silence.



Composition 2019.04 (Untitled)

Composition 2019.04 (Untitled) consists of a number of different sounds that fade in and out and of each other - creating an ever-evolving sonic texture. 



Composition 2019.05 (Untitled) 

The components of the composition consist of slowly evolving sounds that constantly change pitch and dynamics. Beat frequencies are formed by the interference patterns caused by the changes of pitch of the different elements - and so furthering the harmonic complexity of the composition.

Composition 2019.05 (Untitled) was first performed at the Sonic Electronics Festival - Curated by Laura Netz - IKLECTIK - London - 31.05.2019.


Composition 2019.05 (Untitled) Live Film

Composition 2019.05 (Untitled) Live Film is of Bernhard Living performing at the Sonic Electronics Festival Curated by Laura Netz - Iklectik - London - 31.05.2019.



Composition 2019.06  (Untitled) 

Composition 2019.06 (Technological Artefacts) consists of three layers: two fading tones at C3 and C#3; a sinewave-based sound that slowly ascends in pitch -  in microtonal increments - from C1 to C2; and a distorted noise element that brings the composition to its final conclusion. 
 
Composition 2019.06 (Technological Artefacts was first performed at Corpora Aliena - IKLECTIK - London - 13.07.2019




Composition 2019.07 (Untitled) 

The components of Composition 2019.07 (Untitled) consist of three short tones that repeat against a pulsing sound that continues for the duration of the composition. 



Composition 2019.08 (Objective Truth)

Composition 2019.08 (Objective Truth) consists of two fading sounds set against a continuous background tone pitched at C1. 

In philosophy - objectivity is the concept of truth independent from individual subjectivity (bias caused by one's perception - emotions, - or imagination). A proposition is considered to have objective truth when its truth conditions are met without bias caused by a sentient subject. Scientific objectivity refers to the ability to judge without partiality or external influence. Objectivity in the moral framework calls for moral codes to be assessed based on the well-being of the people in the society that follow it. Moral objectivity also calls for moral codes to be compared to one another through a set of universal facts and not through subjectivity.
  


Composition 2019.09 (Untitled)

Composition 2019.09 (Untitled) was produced digitally using FM and granular synthesis - and consist of a small number of sounds with different timbres that fade in and out of each other.

Composition 2019.10 (Infinite Expanse) 

Composition 2019.10 (Infinite Expanse) consists of three elements: a short repeating tone pitched at C3 - a fading tone at C#3 - and a continuous tone at C1.




Composition 2019.11 (Untitled) 

Composition 2019.11 (Untitled) was produced digitally using FM - wavetable - and physical-modelling synthesis - and consists of three layers; a repeating short sound pitched at C4; five fading sounds at C2 - C3 - C#3; and a continuous low frequency tone pitched at C1.



Composition 2019.12 (Untitled)

Composition 2019.12 (Untitled) consist of three elements - a sinewave-based tone that slowly rises in pitch from C4 to C5 - a short repeating tone - and a continuous tone pitched at C1.
