«NOTAM / April 18 – May 5 2016
Luca Forcucci

The research and composition project at NOTAM (a collaboration with
Vandaler Forening) was based on the finalisation of two distinct works:

1) Three electroacoustic compositions developed during one year in San
Francisco, South Africa and mixed in Oslo. The three pieces are
inspired by the sound of the body and a novel of the Swiss writer
Friedrich Du?rrenmatt. The three pieces are waiting for a label to be
published.

2) A tool to play, in ambisonics, soundscapes in concert with the software
Ableton Live. This project was achieved on an 8 channels system.
However, the opportunity to develop on 24 channels was offered during
my stay at NOTAM: a fantastic opportunity for future development. The
tool is tested on tour in Brazil from May to July 2016.

I had the pleasure to exchange ideas during discussions with all the members of NOTAM. I felt particularly at home by invigorating exchanges on
soundscapes (including relevant literature), ambisonics strategies and
technology, or invitations to concerts. I found the environment unique for his
dedication to the artistic side first and then focussing on ideas promoting
technology and innovation.

I was equally honoured to meet Norwegian composers and discover their
music. In addition, it was my first time in this beautiful country, and although I
spent a great deal of my time working on the projects, I had the wish to
discover more of its legendary landscapes. It was an honour to have been
invited to conduct my composition research at NOTAM. The team (Thom,
Cato, Jøran, Notto and Astrid) made me feel the first day at home, and I take
the opportunity to thank them all for the hospitality.»
