Spectrum Studies

music by
Anna Pidgorna

A video composed for the music piece titled "Spectrum Studies" by Anna Pidgorna.

A compilation of already existing music with images. The images are arranged along the line of music. Both elemts show up knots and release, independence and correlation, communication and subtle interaction.
I was fascinated by the transparancy of sound in such a visual environment. I beleive, that ear and eye together recognize more, whenever both perceptions are related and tuned. This is an experiment to proof and experience the limits of perception and their interactive positions.

Many thanks to Anna Pidgorna for this soundtrack.

The source was taken from

There she writes about on Soundcloud.com:
This was my first attempt at spectral music. It is also quite serial. I am using the first nine (if I remember correctly) partials of the clarinet spectrum. There are no quarter tones since I'm working with glockenspiel and vibraphone. I didn't think they'd appreciate it if I filed them down.

Instrumentation: clarinet in Bb, glockenspiel and vibraphone played by two players.

Off the Voice by Anna Pidgorna


The inspiration for Off the voice came as I watched a friend, a vocalist, struggle with a sickness, which left her terrifyingly mute for several weeks. For me it came to represent a much wider problem: the inability to express ourselves due to some real or imagined impediment, a suffocating disease we suffer in various spheres of our lives.








Anna Pidgorna (b. 1985) is a composer and media artist who combines her interests in sonic objects, visual art and writing to create works that are dramatic and picturesque. She works in both the acoustic and electronic realms, independently and in conjunction. Having a special interest in theatre, she is currently working on her second chamber opera, On the Eve of Ivan Kupalo, funded by a fellowship from the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies. Her first exploration of the genre, Shards, was written and premiered in 2006 with the help of the J.E.A. Crake Undergraduate Summer Research Grant. Pidgorna was born in Ukraine and is heavily influenced by her heritage. Ukrainian folk themes appear as bird song in her first orchestral work, Tintamarre, and form the backbone of Ivan Kupalo. Pidgorna completed her undergraduate studies at Mount Allison University in Sackville, Canada in 2007 and is pursuing a master’s degree at the University of Calgary, Canada.
