Genosong is an improvising ensemble with live sampling. It incorporates live electronics as an augmentation of traditional acoustic instruments in an improvisational context through live sampling alone: no pre-recorded sounds or synthesis methods are used. A natural and organic electroacoustic soundscape is produced that acts as an additional voice in the ensemble; this results in further development of the musical material by the players that is then also sampled. The creation of this feedback allows for extremely interesting emergent behaviour where smooth and gradual processes are juxtaposed against abrupt and chaotic changes.
