“Utopia” is an acousmatic composition journey that presents a brief momentum of colorfully structured sound fields, with the intention to boost an audience’s imagination into a temporary utopian mindset.
Prior to the creation of “Utopia” there have been a series of sound creation experiments. These experiments primarily involved “explorations” in the creation of complex sound fields. For example, a simplistic sound phrase is processed in such a structured way that it becomes a complex, layered sound field. Various relating sound fields have been generated this way, using similar sound sources. “Utopia” was created by organizing these resulting sound fields poetically.
