RES is constructed upon psychological associations and abstracted elements of contexts of life progressively shaping the disquitness of the world of both artists and evolves starting from their personal emotions to larger ones.
RES is not a conventional sound/poetry release where the music and the poetry are two different elements that accompany each other, instead the verbal and the sonic elements have been constructed as a single entity of expression through generative sound-design.
Audio recordings of Jonida’s voice reciting her verses were translated in MIDI data and implemented in real-time in various Vsti synthesizers triggering them to play their respective sounds sincronized with her vocal pitch, tempo, etc. Each sound was then furtherly synthesized in multiple approaches to create different textures originally started from the same organic material but in non-parallel evolvement patterns. The final result is an intrinsic combination between Jonida’s natural voice and the electronic/electroacoustic sounds originally triggered by it.
