Announcing Reson8+ (Reson8 PLUS!)

Announcing Reson8+

Reson8+ takes Reson8 a small step forward without changing direction.  

For the last 10 years I have made soundscapes that resemble those at the end of 'I Am Sitting In A Room' by Alvin Lucier; first using his process to create the sounds, then creating them directly from vocal samples or live inputs using Reson8.  This discipline remains at the heart of my work.

Reson8+ allows me to add to the Reson8 soundscape at any moment, giving additional insights and commenti...

About Me

Jeff Cloke I have been involved with experimental music since the 1960s, and since 2002 I have been fascinated by the sound of the space itself, as well as the sounds made in the space; an activity inspired by the composer Alvin Lucier. My first Resonation projects involved a microphone and delays, allowing sounds to be replayed into the space repeatedly so that they gradually reinforce themselves, creating an harmonic interaction with the space. Projects have been both solo and making work with other artists; using filters and effects pedals, sounds are combined dynamically within the context of constantly evolving harmonies and rhythms, creating a unique, shifting soundscape derived from both the instruments and the space. Between 2005 and 2008 I worked to develop a laptop setup using the same Resonation principles, but allowing faster responses and the ability to perform live sampling and processing of other musicians and the sounds in the room. The new laptop process, Reson8, is also able to utilise multiple speaker setups in order to produce surround sound with moving sound objects. For solo pieces Reson8 uses stored recordings of the human voice (spoken words) which are transformed to reveal their inner beautiful, shifting, harmonic soundscapes. Recent projects have included solo and ensemble performances in Berlin, Potsdam and London, as well as performances with dancers, performance artists and musicians. A new venture is the production of surround-sound DVDs with Reson8 sounds moving in space, with accompanying visual images.
