continual
continual concrète practice - a compositional approach, where a given sound material is recorded or generated and then applied, diffused, processed and re-recorded over multiple iterations. these iterations - or concretions -  could be in the format of performances, installations or hybrids. the sound material is continually shifting, morphing and developing. each concretion leaves its temporal and spatial traces and imprints in the growing body of sound material, which is layered, staggered, cut and merged. over time, not for one finished piece - it is being unfolded, processed, recorded again, modified and re-applied again to ever new listening situations. the use of audio tools and procedures and the ways of using sounds are derived from the historical musique concrète, so composing starts with concrete sounds, not with an abstract idea and sound diffusion is the main performance method. in contrast to the fixed media compositions of musique concrète though, continual concrète pieces do not result in a finished, hermetic work. each iteration is responsive to its concrete surroundings, the different speaker types, the architecture and available systems. performances are in a way temporary concretions where the different spatio-temporal fragments and layers are stringed and woven together in the present moment.
