Omer Chatziserif, Kafes, création (2011)

"Kafes" is an audiovisual algorithmic live perfomance, based on the melodic frame Makam and the repetition of Usul rhythmic patterns borrowed to Ottomane music. Makam rests and usul rhythms define the narrative structure of this composition. Each makam, likewise in the Indian ragga, fixes a unique principle bewteen notes and singing developement. Usul, the underlying rhythmic, completes this sound scale and helps sometimes to shape the whole piece structure, heights, volumes and tones, and also its visual animation.
