Semaphor

A spatial sound-composition for Helder Tenor Recorder and IKO.

Premiere 25th and 26th October 2018 at Acker Stadt Palast Berlin.

“Semaphor” is a spatial sound-composition for two pioneering instruments, which are explored both practically and theoretically by the artists Susanne Fröhlich and gksh:
Helder Tenor recorder and the Icosahedral loudspeaker (IKO). If one understands both instruments as sound projectors, sound textures in sculpturally entangled states, spatially demarcated sound layers and scenographies can be composed and perceived in a way, scarcely producible in this ensemble constellation until now.
The piece attempts to discover the shared perceptual spectrum of both instruments in dialogue and thus to expand the aesthetic possibilities of spatial composition in the present.

A production by Susanne Fröhlich & Gerriet K. Sharma in cooperation with Acker Stadt Palast Berlin. Supported by Initiative Neue Musik Berlin e.V.

Sound Sculpture

Working in the fied of so called “spatialized music” for about 15 years I was asking myself how to describe the phenomena I was producing in loudspeaker environments better, – in other words – how to find descriptions and techniques that are knowledge- and perception-based at the same time? The aim is to find a […]

Eadweard’s Ear – Muybridge extended

Eadweard’s Ear-Muybridge extended – an interface for composers, dancers and musicians. The dancers’ movements are transformed in real time into a graphical notation by a specially developed interface. The generated movement data are interpreted by musicians on the basis of a trained compositional structure. In turn, they evoke the immediately resulting movements of the dancers.  […]
