Violin Vacuum One

Violin Vacuum One is one in a series of pieces by Alon Ilsar that feature his new gestural instrument for electronic percussion called the AirSticks. For these pieces, Ilsar has limited his palette of sounds to only those sampled from the other featured instrument; in this case, the violin played by Bronwyn Cumbo. Some samples are pre-recorded in previous sessions, others are sampled live, and all are triggered and manipulated live by Ilsar on the AirSticks alongside the score for the violin. The AirSticks allows the electronic percussionist to map various percussive gestures in different spaces to different sounds. It also allows the manipulation of these samples through changes in position and orientation of the hands, fingers and feet.
