New podcast: Hugo Paquete

Hugo Paquete
“Striping Strings and Broken Objects” was develop in the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe, IMA | Institute for Music & Acoustics, Germany. For be integrated in the Klangdoom exploring the Zirkonium software possibilities for sound spacialization.

This composition is configured as a dynamic study for prepared piano and other electronic sounds, generated and processed elements. To compose this work Hugo Paquete develop some patches where he explores additive and subtractive synthesized signal processing from the material source and stochastic composition methods to construct oscillation of frequencies and tones and granulation. Constructing and deconstruction, the referential origins of the sound with collage technique.

The tension of striping the time strings of physics to just stay with broken objects.

Hugo Paquete (1979) is an intermedia and sound artist which in his research uses concepts about space and microtonality as a visual and audible ecosystem according to spatial and psychological characteristics (acoustic, architectonic, sculptural, perspective, communicative, evocative and environmental). The result is an audible interaction, open and indeterminate to the present time scales nano and macro. Territory of hyper-sensation and experimentation, observation and enclose the body in the listening act, turning it active and explored referential and resonator propulsive in a psycho-acoustic level. In his works he uses technical elements and practices from field-recording to computer generated sound synthesis and audio spacialization, denoting an interest in stochastic probabilities between computer algorithmic and programming interaction.

He was a resident artist in the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe, IMA | Institute for Music & Acoustics. He received a ZKM grant for the development of different compositions, multimedia projects focused in sound spacialization and interaction between sound and psycho-acoustic in multichannel configuring systems and free software uses. He received a commissioned compositional work from Chris Ziegler to develop an interactive composition system for iPhones, integrated in a dance media piece premiered at the ZKM in 2011 with the name “Pygmalion”.

He has actively presented his research in solo and collaborative art activities, nationally and internationally. He is developing other project with the name SSTFM and Quadrivium project focus in electroacoustic and acousmatic music.

He collaborated with the Lithuanian Artist Julijonas Urbonas to the development of the sound composition to the Talking Doors project that earned the Prix Ars Electronica of 2010, and a recommendation from the jury of the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival in 2010 and a honorary mention in the Media, Live 2011 Grand Prix in Turku, Finland.
