Spatial Sound

Bálint Laczkó

Bálint Laczkó has studied music since the age of 7.  In 2009 he started his composition study and in 2015 he finished his Degree of Composition at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest. Since then, he has been continuing his studies with more and more interest in spatial electroacoustic music, as well as music for bigger ensembles, and the two combined.

During the spring 2016, Krasz was awarded an artist residency at the Spatial Sound Institute. The piece Laczkó created is titled 'Streams' and investigates the connections between instrumental musical gestures and the distribution of the sounding space. It is also experimenting with the division of a large space and thus the collocation and isolation of parallel musical events. It is focused on the slow gradual transformation of sound qualities shifting from rather eventlike sounds to the more stable, pitch-centered ones.
