"Ihr Fassen nach Wind"

electroacoustic music

tape: 2 channel, CDR/DAT

For the piece "Ihr Fassen nach Wind" I used a text of the German author Michael Wuestefeld (Dresden), which also represents a formal arrangement and subdivision. The speech and the text are broken into little, sometimes
complete word parts. Furthermore I recorded the acoustic environment of the Johannes Church in Duesseldorf (Germany) from the north, the east, the south and the west sides and manipulated this material or used it also in its
original form in short cuts. The sound of the bells and some interior sounds of the church are also important components and motives throughout the entire piece. The idea was to combine the composition of electroacoustic text elements with the manipulated surrounding acoustic of a central, well-known and public building in my town.
