Spaces 1: Castle

In their ‘Spaces’ series, Aron and Rodi travel to a variety of locations to perform their unique take on improvised music.

Aron is often building a melodic motif on the piano by bouncing off the unpredictable timbre, tone, texture and noise Rodi is creating through sampling, granular synthesis and live studio mixing techniques.

Some of the additional elements utilized are west african percussion, melodica, and a series of live feedback loops run through filters. They also heavily rely on the natural acoustics of the space and dynamics through using varied microphone placement.

“Working both within and with the spaces we set up to perform in. The architecture and acoustics of the environment become like a third participant in our process.” - Rodi Kirk

“The more we perform in different spaces the more experience we garner; new techniques are learnt. In the castle, we tested mic techniques using different placements and rooms and outdoor natural environment including rain. So next time we might be outside entirely, in the forest perhaps.” - Aron Ottignon
