The French composer Thierry Lancino composed his work "Aloni" for instrumental ensemble, boys' choir, vocal soloists and the live-elctronic environment developed at IRCAM, Paris. Specially designed algorithms process the acoustic music of instrumentalists and singers in real time and create a new musical dimension of space, timbre and artistic intensity.
Tamas Ungvary is one of the pioneers of digital music at EMS, Stockholm, and is currently head of the computer music program at the Music Academy in Vienna. He composed for the computer as "non-real time soloist" in "Gypsy Children's Giant Dance with Ili Fourier". The recording of a children's dance from Hungary is analyzed by the computer and put back together in a way only an artist could come up with. The result is a phantastic voyage through sounds with gypsy music shimmering on the waves of new spectral shapes.
