streicherMODUL3

Year: 
2003
Authors: 
Georg Holzmann
Project Description: 

streicherMODUL3 is an algorithmic composition.
The "building blocks" of the composition are groups of tones, which are looped. Every instruments plays one individual groups.
Now these groups are transformed: they get condensed, widened, different playing techniques, etc.
Additionally the 4 strings are out of tune against each other in eight tones - so a micro-tonal network arises.

The algorithms are implemented in PD.
All instruments are controlled via curves as shown in picture 2.

Event Description: 

2klar performance at the steirischer herbst.

2klar

Year: 
2002
Authors: 
Georg Holzmann (composition, computer)
Authors: 
Thomas Orthaber (clarinet)
Project Description: 

This piece consists of simple chains of sounds, which are growing and shrinking. But these chains are difficult to recognize, because the whole composition is cut up in small parts and assembled again like a puzzle.
Furthermore recorded and sometimes digital transformed samples of the clarinet are played back.

In 2klar the distinction and perception of the "real" and "faked" sounds is very important. Can we distinguish the "live"-clarinet from the recorded (and transformed) one ?

frühling, sommer, winter

Project Description: 

Very simple mathematical expressions are mapped onto the automatic piano (see picture), which can play all keys at the same time, fast repetitions etc.

Gessler PianoGessler Piano

frühling: consinsts of falling scales

sommer1: all keys of the piano are played at the same time, but each key with a different rhythm, which is a multiple of a prime number. So there are never two keys playing at exactly the same time.

sommer2: like sommer1, but now the lowest key has the slowest rhythm

winter: is a constantly "growing" cluster from one key to all 88 keys in a nearly constant rhythm. Afterwards the keys are released in the inverse order.

The algorithms are realized within the open source software PD.

Project Description: 

Five players are positioned in the audience: four players in the edges of the room, one in the middle.
The sounds are generated with different objects: newspapers (noise), wine glasses (tones), scratching with forks on plates (grating) and in the middle of the audience there is also a violin (which should be played by a non professional violin-player). Now these sounds "fly" through the room from one player to the other in different patterns.

Every player has a little amplifier to "enlarge" the quiet sounds.
The performers are synchronized via CD's: everyone has a small CD-player and headphones, on this CD she/he can hear the triggers sound events.

Project Description: 

Quietsch (engl. grating) is a collage of very feared sounds.
But if you hear these "quietschers" for a longer time, you will recognize a lot of variations and maybe you'll start to fall in love with those strange sounds Wink !
