Veronika Simor

(born in 1976, Budapest, resident in Vienna), composer. Simor Veronika tailors her compositions according to specific situations and premises. For solo tape recordings or in combination with live electronics or instruments, she creates compositions that are especially designed for certain occasions. She extracts the formal structure of each piece from the musical source material, which consists of concrete and or instrumental sounds. The combination of tape recordings and instruments form the foundation of recorded instrumental sounds, which are already set in the electroacoustic thinking, because of the complex, noisy sounds- Simor calls the result “carpet” material. In addition, these recordings are electronically altered beyond recognition, but she again recorded and connected with live instruments. The tensions is raised by the common sounding of recorded and live performed parts and by switching between the fusing of recordings and instruments or their lifting from each other. According to Morton Feldman’s understanding, this lets time and space become one.
