This piece is inspired by the first movement of cello octet (Inventions) written by Bohdana Frolyak. Despite that the music is very different, the technical idea of 8 voices playing in a canon was borrowed directly from the original composition.
In this piece a solo violin part, processed with ring modulation, is accompanied by 8 oscillators reading pitch, bandpass and amplitude modulation data stored in the patch, but each voice with a different delay. The violinist looks on the progress of the first voice on the graph and follows that in an improvisational manner.
Violin solo by Bohdan Bulka, thanks Bohdan!
