Plastic Recollections 6
"Plastic Recollections series"is the sound project Junya Oikawa has started since 2004, to find various "sound world" produced from the noises of a single object, and structure them organically in the space. He has presented several compositions made with clattering sound of MD, noises of a piano, friction of a cement block, melting sound of polystyrene foams and so on. This work was composed at the ZKM for his soloconcert at the Fohhn IOSONO LAB with its 3D system, commissioned by Kunststiftung Baden Württemberg in April 2015. It is composed by the sound of a snare drum. Sound texture produced by the attack of this snare drum repeats both static and dynamic transformation instantaneously as if sound cells are split up in the space. It is an attempt to redefine the relationship between the fragments of sound and development of the work as an organic structure to create spatial punctuation and paragraph in the form of sound, and arrange them in the stereophonic space of the Fohhn using IOSONO system. In June and October, he performed this work using stereo mix sound for the Bremer Lautsprecher- Orchester in the REM Festival in Bremen and AKOUSMA Festival in Montreal.
