A co-production of IEM – Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz and ORF musikprotokoll.

Together with a number of young composers, guts’n’faders explore the performative and spatial-acoustic possibilities of the IKO, putting a wide range of different variations of contemporary music “into space,” from algorithmic structures (Orestis Toufektsis) to linguistic composition (Reinhold Schinwald), from archaic murmurs (Lorenzo Troiani) to a nonchalant blend of styles between rock music and avant-garde (Stephan Schweiger).

                                    Semaphor: Premiere at Acker Stadt Palast Berlin

Semaphor  spatial sound-composition for Helder Tenor Recorder and IKO

25. and 26.10.2018 – 8.00 p.m.
Acker Stadt Palast Berlin

Semaphor is a spatial sound-composition for two pioneering instruments, which are explored both practically and theoretically by the artists Susanne Fröhlich and Gerriet K Sharma: Helder Tenor recorder and the Icosahedral loudspeaker (IKO).

If one understands both instruments as sound projectors, sound textures in sculpturally entangled states, spatially demarcated sound layers and scenographies can be composed and perceived in a way, scarcely producible in this ensemble constellation until now.

The piece attempts to discover the shared perceptual spectrum of both instruments in dialogue and thus to expand the aesthetic possibilities of spatial composition in the present.

A production by Susanne Fröhlich & Gerriet K. Sharma in cooperation with Acker Stadt Palast Berlin.
Supported by Initiative Neue Musik Berlin e.V.
