Thembi Sodell created a piece entitled “Let Go of Control” for the 2 Minutes From Home” series of new music commissions, performed by the Decibel New Music Ensemble. Thembi talks to Decibel artistic director Cat Hope from regional Victoria, Australia.
#13 Thembi Soddell – Let Go of Control
Sound artist and electroacoustic composer Thembi Soddell has created the piece ‘Let Go of Control’ for our 2 Minutes From Home series of new music commissions.
The work of Soddell resides in a zone or unrelenting darkness and the physicality of affect. Working on the nexus of musique concrète, raw emotion, and sound design they create dense and abyss-like sound worlds.
Watch the video and follow the score, which is created for the Decibel ScorePlayer – an iPad application to enable the coordinated reading of graphic notations.
We previously commissioned a piece from Soddell back in 2014 titled ‘Your Sickness is Felt in my Body’ as part of our After Julia project.
