Room Sketch: Chess – multimedia performance, where sonic and visual material is to be structured by chess play, in real time. Every performance result is unique, it comes out of dynamics and number of moves.
Chess board is mapped with sound matrix by correlation and juxtaposition of certain sounds, utilizing chess game as a dynamic score for constantly changing sound plasma, turning watcher to listener, making playing process an engine for driving the score.
Each move, as well as each pause between the moves, is mapped with sound phrase and / or parameter of sound processing, finding its special path to the whole structure, interacting with simultaneous moves or pauses processing.
Created initially as a compositional algorithm to perform live-acousmatic sets of Patrick K.-H. / Oleg Makarov duo, Room Sketch: Chess turns to be a platform for invited sound artists to encounter their samples / presets.
