Genkai (Japanese 限界, meaning limit, boundary) is the second collaboration between Italian sound artist Fabio Perletta and Japanese sound designer for Pioneer, Haruo Okada.
The work was born out of the purpose to limit the elements employed in the process of composing. It comes up in the form of micro compositions created by following strict rules of juxtaposing elements: ‘and/or’, ‘just one’, ‘maximum three’, ‘duration’. An attempt of creating independent systems of electro-acoustic combinations, mixing abstract electronics and concrete recordings through an ever changing auditory field.
All sound recorded by Haruo Okada between 2008 and 2016 in various locations around the world including a cave, a small factory, several airport lobbies, and a recording room. Digitally processed and composed by Fabio Perletta in Berlin between January and February 2016.
