Electroacoustic etude №1 / 2012, 2’20”
Electroacoustic etude №2 / 2013, 3’50”

translation of graphics into sound. Scores-Sonograms. The result was more interesting than the creation process.

Electroacoustic etude №3 / 2016, 3’10”

I’ve studied the conversion of graphical images into sounds, using “Bitmaps and waves” program. This etude is written to illustrate the scoring of images with different line width, color intensity, continuous or dotted lines and geometric shapes to my students. This piece is a study of the possibilities of the program.

Immersion / 2013-18, 7’41”

The piece was created with five different programs.The main part of my work, and also the basic timbre has been created in Pure Data by combining and processing the sounds of different groups of oscillators.I modified parts of this work in various programs (Reaper,Spear, etc.): stretched in time, changed the pitch,separated an individual timbre, partially combined with the original sound, etc.

The idea for my composition: maintaining rational thinking in complex emotional situations,immersion in a sadness and going out of it. The desire for monotimbral music is a consequence of the idea of composition.

Navigator / 2018, 11’30”

The main timbre of my work made in Pure data by adding oscillators and effects. It was modified in Spear: stretched in time, changed the pitch, partially combined with the original sound, etc. This piece is dedicated to long ways and travels to cities and countries, to technical means and equipment for navigation or routing, to lighthouses and guiding stars, and to that what do you want to find in travel. Everyone has a different imagination. Also, this is a piece about the journey through the inner consciousness of a person. The ability to bypass the obstacles created by ourselves. To find the right way. To find the strength to show someone else the way.
