EvEnTo 3 Movimentos para Orquestra
The Orqestra de Laptops de São Paulo (OLSP) is formed by ten hyper instrumentalists who “play” laptops equipped with the highest technology available, in interfaces as well in software. This orchestra generates a multimedia show entitled “EvEnTo 3 Movimentos para Orquestra”, by Wilson Sukorski. Devourers of the most different sonorities, the little digital machines – laptops and peripherals – are in themselves micro-plants or “orchestras in a box”, and through several types of high-tech software and interfaces they transform/transmute into a hyper instrumentalist their real-time pilot-musician-producer. That is the essence of OLSP’s creative process. Freedom and collectivity. OLSP is also a posthumous homage to the late traditional symphonic orchestra and a break – of the kick-in-the-ass kind – with the cultural indigence of rock bands and other similar grouplets of the pre-download commercial pop – and at the same time an open and participative invitation to DJs, producers and other lonely professionals to look for gregariousness – that quality so musical. Repertoire 1st Movement: Half and idiot (13’33) – Noise music for ten laptops and videoprojections. A wide range of vocal materials totally transmuted toward a sudden moment of suspension – a singularity in which something inexplicable happens, and we won’t waste time trying to explain it here… 2nd Movement: Celestium para MG (12’01) – For ten laptops, three vocal female performers, videoprojections. A temporal score for free improvisation, based on proportions suggested in biomath by Matila Ghyka (1946), the human body in evidence, in proportions here transformed into time, into performance and transformed images. 3rd Movement: Banquete Elétrico (14’07) – Lounge in exotic rhythms on essences and other olfactory relations and its reverberations in the hearing universe. For a “chef” or “perfumist”, exploring odors and other features. All compositions by Wilson Sukorski – Ed. Demolições Musicais.
