7-string baglama

“The bağlama is a stringed musical instrument. It is sometimes referred to as the saz, it is also sometimes referred to as the “cura”, although the term “saz” actually refers to a family of plucked string instruments, long-necked lutes used in Ottoman classical music, Turkish folk music, Iranian music, Azeri music, Kurdish music, Assyrian music, Armenian music, and in parts of Syria, Iraq and the Balkan countries.”
~ Wikipedia

Christos Koulendros – modular synth
Walter Wright – AVSynth

Two PeterB modulars and video, rehearsing for Performance Lab. New setup, long score, exploring the interaction between the two synths. Video runs independently, although patterns and phrases in both audio and video are similar. This, I believe, creates a richer, perhaps more challenging, experience for the viewer.
