Furcation(s) for Violin Solo [or larger string ensemble]


Sound installations based on hand-drawn graphic scores are consisting of pre-recorded instrumental sequences that are merged in multichannel compositions. As a multi-phonic installation they can be played in en empty gallery space, and since they are focused on sharpening polyphone listening the original idea supports creative inputs in spatial mapping. The compositions as well as spatial implications are referring to specific mathematical proportions developed from each score. 

Concept of building sonic environment out of equations is inspired by the study of universal cycles. 

Other way of performing the scores suggests decomposition of a graphic structure suitable for string ensemble. The ensemble can be further situated in the space mapped in correlation with the mathematical propositions. 

Mondsüchtigkeit [ Moonwalking ]

Mondsüchtigkeit [ Moonwalking ] is a 4 movement graphic score inspired by sound produced by hand-pulled tape through open tape recorder. Variability of speed and almost meditative concentration of the performer while pulling pre-recorded sound between tape recorder’s wheels greatly affects the final outcome, sound textures and dynamics. Geometry of the elements as well as number of lines in each figure is main subject of the structure analysis. Instrument(s) are directed to produce floating drone-like sound and to invent pitch changes according to the variability of geometrical perspectives.

Composition gives impression of clear space in which eclectic sound forms occur. Electronic processing of the strings is not excluded.
