CUC Kino Šiška

*New Music for Data Base Sound*
*Austrian electroacoustic musicians and sound artists*


*Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture*
Trg prekomorskih brigad 3
1000 Ljubljana

*5 and 6 April 2012 at 20pm*
The concerts and performances are going to present latest works by some of
the Austrian most distinguished electroacoustic musicians and sound artists,
who are going to present their explorations of versatile manipulations of
electronic and acoustic sounds. These media artists and composers are
expanding the contemporary understanding of Neue Musik style by
constructing computed environments, adopting elements of electronics and
analogue sounds, thus creating a dialog between improvisation, structure
and spontaneity. In a two day sound soirée they will take us to a rich
arena of soundscapes with experimental noise, live programming and image
projections, presenting a diversity of sound and music genre, that can
attract a variety of demanding listeners.

Josef Klammer: **Drumming is an Elastic Term*
*latex and glass drums, electronics, solo concert** *
Josef Klammer is exploring the basic sounds of materials. His drums are
equipped with unusual membranes and played with strangely emphasised
gestures. Glass membranes are played to the limits of shattering, and
elastic latex drum-heads are slowing down the sound of the drums, making
them breathe and pump. Silicon, as the key element in latex and glass
materials, functions as a conductor in the microchips of the musician's
electronic equipment. The concert is therefore a search for an audio
experiences in the "silicon age". *

Norbert Math: undo *
*laptop and microphone concert for a solo performer ** **
Undo* will be presented to the public for the first time at Kino Šiška. It
employs a duet of computer-controlled sirens along with live electronics.
It is a study in psychoacoustic phenomenon which is, as such, closely
affiliated with the works of Hermann von Helmholtz and Maryanne Amacher. *

Seppo Gründler: Doing What Happens Anyway*
*computer extended guitar, monome, solo concert** *
The title *Tun Was Geschieht [Doing What Happens Anyway]* is a quote from *The
Man Without Qualities* by Robert Musil. The structured improvisation with
electronic-guitar starts with one of the possibilities to trigger a sound
on the guitar. A very sensitive processing PureData patch reacts on tiny
changes. The resulting and following sounds and acoustic dramaturgy
develops in real-time alongside the evolving sounds and playing techniques.
The acoustic impressions are created instantly, in the area of conflict
between the flow and the structure.


Katharina Klement *(clavichord),* Daniel Lercher* (electronics)*:* *éclair*
*concert *
Katharina Klement identifies herself as a structural improviser, where her
preference is to work with textures, organized/classified formations of
different layers to create the parameters for her work. In cooperation with
Daniel Lercher they create dense improvised sound textures resembling
organic structures like clouds with contrasting percussive elements. The
details of processing the micro-structure of sounds and careful use of
dynamics leads to a performance different to typical egomaniac outbursts by
the improvisers. They are based in aesthetics of accuracy, making every
acoustic expression vibrate and sizzle. *

Klammer & Gründler Duo* *Josef Klammer* (drums, electronics), *Seppo
Gründler *(extended guitar, electronics)
The performance is an exploration of attentive hearing, open-ear sound
surgery, patching, detecting and connecting, dispatching, padding and
leaving, irruption, moulding to break the mould, clear and peculiar.
Klammer & Gründler Duo form a highly intelligent sound pieces out of the
souls of good-tempered, stretched forms of electroacoustic and
digital-improvised music, ironically subduing new music’s controlling
gestures. Their audio is elaborate, precise, impulsive, puzzled,
border-crossing and startling. More than ever, the duo’s actual digital
live-processing is designed for interaction, modulation and restructuring.


*Dope Beat Rose Garden*
*Gernot Tutner *(Heavy Dope Beats), *Elisabeth Sch**imana* (electronics), *N
**orberth Math* (image projection and live programming)
Elisabeth Schimana deals with electronic textures and networks. In the
collaboration with Gernot Tutner *Dope Beat Rosegarden* she explores
technoid rhythms. They accent the quieter notes and slow tempo that is
highly uncommon for techno, and a gracious sleek groove with the focus on
what is "in-between". Furthermore, Gernot Tutner is not interested in roots
or idols, he wants a live set which is open to improvisation. Gernot
Tutners Heavy Dope Beats embedded in Elisabeth Schimanas digital Rosegarden
is a conceptional back-beat, raw and open, with 1000 tiny sound peaks,
whispering roses and 24 crackling oscillators.

*Klammer & Gründler Duo** *have been working on the implementation of their
“New Improvised Electronic Music” for over 20 years, creating pieces like *
Razionalnik* – first multilateral telematic midi concert, *Im
Trockenraum*– Austrias first earphones concert for 100 earphones,
*RGB* – synchronizing two ensembles (Berlin/Graz) via TV pictures, numerous
sound installations, music for theatre and radiophonic pieces. The
“Klammer-Gründler Interface” transforms its individual parts in real-time,
boils its modules, condenses the parameters and scatters the variables.
They request deconcentrated concentration, aggressively and calmly.

*éclair** *(Katharia Klement: clavichord; Daniel Lercher: electronics)
The duo fathoms out unusual instrumental playing techniques in combination
with live-electronic transformations. It uses diverse material, from sine
waves up to noisy layering and percussive patterns and moves in the context
of composition as well as improvisation. Symbiotic relations between sound
material and its mirroring in instrumental and electronic transformations
build up a new complex hyper instrument.
