Recorded August 2018, (R)evolution Resonant Bodies Program at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.

Sense of Energy works to create rehearsal environments where personal experiences are shared and ideas are brainstormed. This process brings certain awareness to music-making. Such awareness is the aim of the piece.

(As the score says…) It begins with imagining a type of energy in the body and imagining how one’s body would resonate if it was vibrating with this type of energy…

Esin Gunduz is a new music composer and a vocal performer whose work investigates the types of energies at play among all beings (connection / tension, opposition / union), exploring these energies as sensory experiences and sound.  In her works, the tessitura in human voice is translated into instrumentation and orchestration.  The landscapes built from recorded-voice samples surround the instruments creating other-worldly atmospheres.
