SNR is the acronym for Signal to Noise Ratio which in electronics and engineering is a numerical quantity that relates the power of the useful signal to that of the noise in any information processing system. SNR is a series of acousmatic compositions that explore the relationship between sound and noise in the context of electronic composition and according to our way of orienting listening in the presence of sound forms structured not following a musical logic, but evoking artificial soundscapes and organized sounds. SNR II was born from the manipulation of analogue musical materials recorded on cassettes starting from an experimental musical instrument made with three strings stretched on a piece of wood and a piezoelectric disc as a contact microphone. The other sounds, wind instruments and percussion, dialogue with the sound of the strings to create pre-musical sound events based on the exploration of ancestral forms of gestures and sonic behaviors.
