Kompositie 1972 / Hafthasht
Siamak Anvari will play two pieces: Kompositie 1972 and Hafthasht.
Kompositie 1972 (Jan Boerman)
Jan Boerman (1923-2020) was one of the most important electronic composers of his time. Most of his compositions use the Golden Ratio, and specifically the Fibonacci numbers as an organizing principle. Composed in the mid 1970s, Kompositie 1972 is made with fairly primitive equipment. A Moog modular, an octave filter and a bunch of tape recorders. In the early 21st century the composer made a multichannel version of the piece in collaboration with Dutch composer Kees Tazelaar. It’s this version that gets its belated Maltese premiere tonight. Long overdue!
Hafthasht (Siamak Anvari)
Hafthasht (2019) is a fixed media multichannel composition. The core idea of the piece is based on the phenomenon of reverberation or echo. A sound bounces from various surfaces and with each reflection it loses part of its energy until it fades into the silence. This idea is incorporated into the production of the sound materials as well as the spatialization of the piece.
So as to view this performance you need to buy the Circuits 2021 Day 1 ticket which allows you also access to the Workshops area (relative to day 1).
