„Eight pieces for the Buchla 100 series”

New release

Sound artist and composer Mario Verandi, who hails from Argentina and lives in Berlin, was a guest in Krems in April under the auspices of AIR-Artist in Residence NÖ, and worked in the former Ernst Krenek Forum (now: Salon Krenek) with Krenek’s Buchla synthesizer. He now presents the results of his sojourn on a new CD, which takes the listeners on a journey through the many-faceted worlds of sound of the historical analog synthesizer. The album contains eight pieces that fathom the experimental and minimalistical electrical sounds of the modular Buchla series 100 synthesizer (built in 1966/67).

Mario Verandi studied music in Argentina and in Barcelona. He earned a doctorate in electro-acoustic music composition at the University of Birmingham (UK). His creative work is diverse and includes electro-acoustic musical compositions, electronic live performances, sound installations, music for dance, theater, and radio, and most recently a project with compositions in the ambient/electronic genre. His works have been performed throughout the world, including at festivals such as Multiphonies GRM (Paris), the Donaueschingen Musiktage, Kontakte (Berlin), MärzMusik (Berlin), the Open House Contemporary Argentine Art Exhibition (London), the International Poetry Festival (Berlin), the Stockholm Electronic Art Festival, and Interactive Futures (Canada).
