[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Jean Piché – Shola INversion (Western Ghats, 1994-95)

Artist Statement


This is a first perusal through material assembled during a stay in South India in 1994-95.­ After images of a blackened sub-continent and its uncertain modernity, of the stunned silence of the sholas and the quiet rage of daily transactions. Shola-INversion is the documentary of an unconditional welcome… Sound was treated with a number of frequency-domain and time-domain processes.

Software: Csound, Svp. Hardware: Silicon Graphics.

  • Jean Piché (Canada) teaches electroacoustic and computer music composition at the University de Montreal. His current interests include digital sound synthesis, interactive performance practices, algorithmic composition and documentary video.
