14. Kasseler Orgelfrühling – Concert IV

After my first encounter with Peer Schlechta in a sequence of his Ambient Stairs series (July 2023) I was back this May for a larger format concert in the large space of Kassels Auferstehungskirche.

The Friedrich-Euler-organ (1956), restored by Orgelbau Andreas Schmidt (2011) encountered my combination of Moog Claravox Theremin plus modular synthesizer (sonics primarily by 4ms Ensemble & Make Noise Spectraphon VCO).

I used my voice to create and manipulate the timbre while controlling pitch and spectral tilt through the Theremin. A Stereo Field generated glitchy and crackly components and centrally placed Haken Audio Continuum Fingerboard allowed for more polyphonic improvisation.

Watch the montage of the first 12 minutes of our concert here. More to come 🙂

Premiere on May 15, 2024 at 20:00 CET

May 04+05 – workshop & concert in Jena

About the workshop: “The organ has been one of the most technically complex musical instruments for centuries and has always inspired organ builders and musicians to create new technical and musical innovations. It offers exciting connections to a wide variety of electronic musical instruments that have emerged over the past 100 years of music history.

Together with sound engineer Andrew Levine, an expert in the field of electronic musical instruments, we embark on a sonic journey of discovery to new sounds and sound combinations that can pick us up in our present and touch us emotionally.”
