Stark Bewölkt: Olaf Hochherz
Stark Bewölkt – Konzertreihe für aktuelle Musik:
Olaf Hochherz (Berlin): book, contact mics
Gregory Büttner: loudspeakers, objects, computer
Olaf Hochherz is born 1981 in Wuppertal/Germany. He studied at Folkwang Hochschule Essen electronic composition and at Bauhaus University Weimar media-art/media-design. Parallel to the education in composition he started to improvise with self build electronic instruments. He is interested in unstable systems. His goal is not to control a technical aperture but to create an associative field. The sounds have their own live. His playing tries to keep them alive. He is interested in the effect acoustic activity has, the relation between surrounding environment and instruments, between abstract sounds and associations, between electrical and other worlds.
About the book instrument:
in 2006 I started to use an electronic setup as an instrument. A combination of piezoelectric contact microphones and speakers and a book. The instrument is based on the feedback between the microphones and the speakers. The book is a resonator and a filter. Together it is a unstable system which allows me to play in an indirect way, by pressing the book and changing the filtering by that. The aim is not to control a technical apparatus, but to create an associative field. The sounds have their own live. The playing tries to keep them alive.
