I am excited for the upcoming issue of the live-streaming concert series Hypersounds on January 8th, 2021 @ 22:00 (UCT +1) by
Musicdesk – the global music platform
This concert will be my first in the year 2021, featuring two pieces:
- “What is the word“ for computer-generated sounds (acousmatic)
based on text by S. Beckett, composed during my computermusic studies in Stuttgart in 2009
- “6 Fragments on One Act of Cleaning a Piano“ for Disklavier (acoustic)
based on a concrete recording of Franziska Koch, composed during a residence at Ircam in 2013.
Both works are completely computer-generated using software I developed (OMPursuit and OM-SoX) which can be found in the development section of this website. You can find program notes, including a description of the algorithmic creation process here and here.
Below are versions of renderings of the pieces from my soundcloud:
You can find the link to the videostream of the concert on the next page.
