Jo Wang has composed and released electronic music since the late 1980s. His music is often described as visual and in the border between noise/melodic and abstract/figurative.
He has extensive experience of adjusting the acoustics in concert halls across Europe using an electronic variable electroacoustic enhancement system.
In his HERDING SPACES project, he combines this technique/technology with his electronic music within improvisation. No room has the same properties. With Pythagoras as a «co-player», the room's physical size and design sets the premises for the tonal registry. During the process the actual space is mirrored with a virtual space. Together they form a relationship, a duet, subject to the room’s physical properties, which forms the framework for the tonal palette.
The audience's presence in the room will also play it’s part in affecting the sound expression.
In this intimate psychoacoustic interaction, the ’live’ concept is expanded into something more than a one way communication from stage to audience. HERDING SPACES is completely linked to the actual live performance happening in just that moment.
A recording under this dogma will only reproduce a one dimensional, bleak version of the performance, missing all the psychoactive processes between the performer and the listener who co-exist in the same acoustical environment and therefore also affect the result.
The different acoustical fingerprints of spaces combined with Jo Wangs musical impro-approach makes every session unpredictable and unique.
33 Officina Creativa (33OC) is a cultural association based in Toffia, Italy with the aims of diffusing contemporary art and preserving local cultural heritage. This is achieved through international artistic exchanges and promotion activities that enable the inclusion of the territory in which the association operates into a broader cultural horizon.
Jo Wang perform two sessions with HERDING SPACES right by the fjord, in the heart of Oslo, inside a triangular shaped SAUNA! Ardna is one of the largest saunas in the world. Welcome to the sensation of steaming sauna combined with altered acoustics in Jo Wangs musical approach
