"MetaMaterials" - Furthering Explorations for a Manifesto of a New Musical Lexicon


Furthering Explorations for a Manifesto of a New Musical Lexicon

Metamaterials are an amalgamation of artificial structural elements, designed to achieve advantageous and unusual electromagnetic properties.




Actually such a flexible definition is incomplete on the one hand, and too strict, on the other. It is helpful to draw the following analogy: Metamaterial is composed of its elements in the same sense as matter consists of atoms. But these structural elements themselves are made of conventional materials, i.e., finally, of normal atoms.

Accordingly, metamaterial represents the next level of structural organization of matter.

So the question begs...how do we apply this in a musical/compositional/auditory context?





Archetype IV of the score "Red Lounge: Zero Theorem Tracheal Splint" for Mixed Choir. Extended application of Metamaterials.
