IKTSUARPOK for amplified voice, minimoog and tape

Iktsuarpok for voice, minimoog and tape was created during the Covid Lockdown, a time of unpredictability, fluctuation and cacophony. Iktsuarpok represents the frustrating wait for visitors. Or for someone to save our world. Iktsuarpok continues my artistic work in the field of electroacoustic music and analog synthesizers and is composed and produced as a Minimoog quartet (3 Moogs as tape and Minimoog solo live). All four Minimoogs develop contrapuntal microtonal melodic lines, extremely dense movements that simulate “screaming” sirens with their hard-shelled sound, culminating in an explosion / detonating cluster to awaken “wise closed eyes” of the world.
