Guillaume Cliche

  • Duration: 8:28
  • Instrumentation: bowl and fixed medium

The bowl is a simple instrument built with a membrane and a stainless steel bowl. The contact between the compressed air and the mambrane gives a spectral richness that I had to put forward. The sounds from the materials of which the Bol is made are therefore the premise of the project. The composition allows the project to evolve with the algorithmic permutations that the sound underwent.
