HECKER / OKKYUNG LEE
Statistique Synthétique / Teum (the Silvery Slit) LP
Portraits GRM 03 / AUS / 2021
Statistique Synthétique by Hecker, draws as much from the history of computer sound synthesis as from its latest developments. But well beyond developing simply as a proof of concept, this piece aims to transcend the abstract status of synthetic sound objects and lead them to a properly hallucinatory state, that is to say to a meeting point where the object and perception dissolve into each other, in a sort of transcendental field. Teum (the Silvery Slit) by Okkyung Lee, as the title suggests, an overture, an opening to the game of multiplications, fragmentations, duplications. But it is also the opening understood as the void that blossoms between two borders, a break from which escapes a double tension, both the pulling force of these two edges which move apart and the opposite force of reconciliation, of compression.
