AUGMENTED SONIC REALITY: Underneath for hyperorgan by Jasna Veličković
Underneath, a piece for hyperorgan by Jasna Veličković was commisioned by Orgelpart in Amsterdam, for a project dedicated to the modern organ, which essentially incorporates new scientific and technological achievements. In this work, Veličković found a way to continue her “open project” based on conducting experiments in acoustic technology and amplifying electromagnetic fields. She introduced the technological into the tradition of organ music by using coils to test the construction of the instrument, by teasing out the invisible possibilities of the organ’s sound space, and by amplifying electromagnetic waves. The composer establishes an augmented reality and points to the expansion of sound and its presence where it remains outside of what our hearing can encompass.
