Ziur - Stantia
Stantia's main characteristics are the brevity of gestures and motifs and rather sparse arrangements that live from the transformation of space and dimensions. Using granular synthesis, geometrically shaped structures recurve and branch out to gather for new arrangements whilst never losing the common thread of the initial pattern. Structures are characterised by huge dynamic contrasts, sudden changes in pace alignment, pauses, expansion and contraction and create the paradox of liveliness in electronic music, the more complex its underlying algorithms are. despite the absence of discernable tonalities, there is a rich tonal spectrum and cleverly arranged passages that make use of complementing timbres which leave the impression of music.
