Chalva is a sweet made with honey. But depending on the recipe, the natural origin might not be clear.
The composition plays with a transition from natural to super synthetic. From pure noise to white tones.
Listen to my tape piece „Chalva“ done for the Eikkk Electronic and Computer Music Competition (Elektroninių ir kompiuterinių kūrinių konkursas) in April 2013 in Vilnius. Quadrophonic piece rendered to Binaural Stereo.
