Daniel Lercher: mimic


inspired by the remarkable skills of starlings in mimicking sounds of other creatures or machinery, in my composition for the raptor-system i work exclusively with digital imitations of some basic warning-signals of these birds. their calls get analysed with computer-software and later the obtained data is used to synthesize these sounds, using different sound- processing methods. the key information (frequencies, amplitudes, rhythm, etc.) remain the same throughout the process, whereas the possibilities of expression through diverse 'voices' are conducted.
