Track 1: Multitrack recording of sustained tones using a ‘Jubel Töne’ zither and additional live electronic effect processing. Track 2: Multitrack recording of sustained tones using a ‘Hohner Organetta’ chord organ and additional live electronic effect processing. Both tracks are part of a composition series based on sustained, multilayered recordings of solo acoustic instruments. The instruments have been performed with extended techniques and additional live electronic “extensions” (looping feedbacks & down-sampling, pitch shifting, reverberation and oscillators). ‘Koura’ is a traditional sheep shearing ceremonial custom, still performed in rural Crete. Every June, local farmers invite a group of close friends and relatives to join this full-day annual festivity dedicated to the sheep. A major feast in late evening finalizes a hard day of commune work.
