Konzert: "Endangered Guitar: THEBIT"
Hans Tammen will present THEBIT, an extension of his recent works for modified surround sound systems, consisting of two independent voices simultaneously drawn from his guitar. With a wide array of mechanical preparations for guitar, processed with his own custom software and with an unusual take on guitar-based control, a single voice is set against a micropolyphonic pattern surrounding the audience. For THEBIT, Hamburg’s Wavefield Synthesis System will allow for complex movements of sounds following the nature of their own inertia, unless the composer introduces small but controlled variations. Some take on a new musical life on their own, others die out at a very early stage of their existence. The random drift moves the piece slowly into new directions, investigating complex stages of tranquility and agitation. Mit der Unterstützung des Zentrums für Mikrotonale Musik und Multimedia (ZM4).
