Synthesis is a serie of concerts curated by Urban Arts Berlin which brings together international composers who work professionally in the sonic field as musicians and sound artists.
The excellent project Synthesis includes two volume albums: Vol. 1 contains 45 tracks by international female composers from Vietnam, China, South Africa, Bolivia, Venezuela, Mexico, Australia, Europe and the US.
Synthesis Vol. 2 is a mixed album with 31 musicians & sound artists from South Korea, Uruguay, Irland, Venezuela, Greece, Belgium, Brazil, Sweden, France, Poland, Mexico, Denmark, Israel, the UK, Colombia, Itally, Canada and the US.
Both albums were released on bandcamp in 2014 and 2015. Urban Arts Berlin is now working on the printing of selected works in vinyl format which will be out in the coming months and released in a big event taking place in 2016.
Since both volumes got a very solid resonance Urban Arts Berlin booked some of the best sound artists who are part of the compilations. This live concerts are particularly interesting because the audience attending will get the chance to experience the contemporary meaning of sound art & music by some of the most relevant composers & musicians alive working professionally in the sonic field. From electro-acoustics to the use of analogue synthesizers, tapes, digital synths, recorder & ableton live, to give some technical examples. All the selected sound artists work combining constituent elements of separate material or abstract elements into a single or unified sonic entity which can be defined as sonic SYNTHESIS.
