Winternacht

for piano, percussion and live-electronics
studio : Klang Projekte Weimar / 2006 / duration: 13 min

Winternacht makes reference to several poems by Georg Trakl.His poetry has been a source of inspiration for many chamber music and electroacoustic compositions in the past years. For this composition, I choose texts which refer to his childhood. But, those poems and letters don't come to the surface of my piece. We hear dialogs of the two musicians, which are taken and transformed by the electronics.

The electroacoustic sounds are a mixture of live treatments of piano and percussion sequences and prepared soundfiles. The electroacoustic part is the prolongation of gestures of the instrumentalists. Their live playing energy is traced by the computer to decide many parameters of the electroacoustic part.
