Digital audio tools developped by Charles-Edouard Platel to achieve his electro-acoustic works.
Ondolon is a real-time acoustic signal processing tool for transforming natural or musical instruments sounds into invented sounds. Developed since 2011 by Charles-Edouard Platel, his concepts have since been at the source of several of his works. He now uses Ondolon for all his work of sound sculpture to produce concrete music creations.
For example, in "Very Far Very Close", Tibetan singing boils are harmonized and orchestrated while letting their sub-harmonic resonances vibrate synchronously. At the beginning of "Forest vibes " , we can also hear baritone saxophone modulations that are multiplied in tessitura and velocity, making us hear through the magnification of reed vibrations as an accelerated perception of the biological tremors of thousands of trees. Later on, for the musical suites Migration, Vibration and Sands, most of the rhythms and sound colors result from an instrumental playing accomplished on Ondolon.
Randolon is a software instrument developed by Charles-Edouard Platel to give rhythm to some of his musics: for example the dynamism of "the Cycle of Life" in the "Acousmatic Transmutations", the natural fluctuations in the thirteen "Anachronistic Poems " , the baffling ballet of the "Persisting Objects" or the flows of clinking sounds in "Very Far Very Close". The instrumental music for the video "Badinage for four hands" was composed entirely by Randolon.
