Alex Brajković (HR) Cincta

Multi-channel composition, 2021

Cincta is a multi-channel IDM composition. Changeable, almost danceable beats, dense ambient textures and an immersive experience of spatialization of sound through careful orchestration are the principal traits of this live electronic set. The piece is performed using three computers with custom-made software and Eurorack modular synthesizers, aided by various controls for live manipulation of musical parameters. Multi-channel composition Cincta is the result of participation in KONTEJNER’s educational programmes – the workshop and guided work in a multi-channel studio under the mentorship of electroacoustics engineer and artist Miodrag Gladović.

The work was commissioned and produced by KONTEJNER, as part of the project Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
