Kernel Expansion (2009) 14'26

Kernel Expansion contains three interconnected sections and explores the essence of sound in its rich multiplicity. The music exposes the 'kernel' or 'heart' of some specific sound sources; from outdoors, from inside, from realities, dreams and imaginations.

The work is spatialised in a hybrid ambisonics format. Some source materials were recorded with a Sound-Field microphone, other materials were synthesised in higher-order ambisonics.

'Kernel Expansion' was commission by, and realised in the studios of ZKM, funded by ZKM's Giga-Hertz Award for electronic and acousmatic music 2008. The work was premiered over ZKM's 43-loudspeaker Klangdome concert system.
