I am happy to have organised two concerts right at the beginning of this year’s festival for improvised music in Hamburg.
On June 02 I will be performing together with the Irish/Greek, Berlin based musicians Roy Carroll and Kriton Beyer, so be prepared to encounter feedback and the inimitable daxophone! Please join us for some noisy fun.
June 03 sees my debut playing with percussionist Rudi Fischerlehner. We hit it off (pun intended 😉 when we met in Berlin in 2022. Stay tuned for an intense, searching, in depth exploration of rhythm and textures when Rudi’s percussion meets my “Theremin+”.
The invitation by the organist Jakob Dietz to perform together with him and the baroque violinist Claudia Mende was the perfect opportunity to put the first rig for my in-ORGAN-ic project to the test.
After studying the inside of the organ I selected two microphone-positions on the same vertical axis. The lower mic (DPA 4060) was proximate to the organ action, the top mic (DPA 4060) in the middle of the central cluster of pipes.
Two envelope followers in the Eurorack setup were fed by these two signals…
…and two Koma Kommander infrared sensor boxes allowed Jakob to control the level of the regenerated signal and the frequency shifted derivate.
To be continued 🙂
This project is supported by a “Neustart Kultur” stipend of Musikfonds.
In five intensive days Eric Cordier and me recorded 12 hours of music. Now we _just_ have to listen closely to the premix of the haul, select what to remix and then release this beast of a sonic tapestry to the world.
The acoustic treatment of our workspace was great. The grand piano was appreciated, but only as a reverb chamber for the live monitoring.
