“For several hundred years Western music has been based on composition and performance. Most attention has been focused on the conception and generation of sound, and very little on its propagation. Written notes are two-dimensional symbols of a three dimensional phenomenon. No matter how complex a system of notation or how real the illusion of depth, written music is trapped on a flat plane”
A. Lucier “Careful listening is more
important than making sounds happen” (1979)
Edelstein incorporated the Sonic Crystal concept in some of his most recent works, for example the orchestral work “Cristal Argento I” which was premiered in 2011 in Switzerland and Germany by Basel Sinfonietta, and included processing of the live orchestra using response - impulse data obtained in a room based on Sonic Crystals.
THE PROJECT HAS HAD MANY IMPORTANT MILESTONES AND GENERATED MANY PUBLICATIONS
