Composition seminar – Manos Panayiotakis

Modes, Spectra and Intuition

My presentation will focus on the exploration of an artistic framework which consists of two contrasting sound worlds, the intuitive and the formalised. I will present various compositional methods applied to a number of my previous works, where modality can be extracted from spectrality and vice versa. The manipulation of the musical material aims to create multiple contrasting layers which form various kinds of symmetrical or non symmetrical structures.
