Finished my new acousmatic piece Verzweigung for 12 audio channels, which was specially created for the USAP project.
USAP (Urban Solar Audio Plant) is a solar-cell powered, wireless LAN controlled, multichannel sound-installation for public space, created by Peter Eisold and Micha Dawid.
A swarm of mobile loudspeaker columns turns every suitable outdoor area into a spacious and unique “listening park”.
By the large-area spreading of the single sound sources and the 12- channel compositions and soundscapes, this novel instrument gives the visitor an extraordinary listening experience at special urban places or at rural areas.
There will be a large number of USAP performances this season, see more here
My piece Bei offenem Fenster has been awarded as a winning work of the international composition competition Atmospheres by the ZKM and the Akademie der Künste Berlin (AdK).
It will be presented from may 8th until may 19th in a listening space at the exhibition “kultur:stadt“.
There will also be a concert presentation at the ZKM later this year.
Great news! My piece Caladan has been awarded with the first price at the 2013 European Erasmus Composition Competition!
The award ceremony and a concert presentation will be held on may 14th at the University Paris VIII in the framework of the Journées d’Informatique Musicale (JIM 13) .
The movements Landing and Exploration of my piece Caladan are going to be presented at the next edition of Sound Devices in Dublin, Ireland.
Sound Devices is an exciting new way for both artists and audiences to explore the connection between sound, acousmatic music and literature.
in celebration of historical Rathmines Library’s 100th anniversary, a series of monthly events in the form of imaginative journeys through sound is curated by sound artist La Cosa Preziosa.
The event is scheduled for 28th February at 6.30pm.
Here is the podcast concerning this edition:
The Schizophonic Scenerys are a new visual component of my project Monday Sounds , where aural perception is created by uploading an environmental sound each monday.
The term Schizophonia goes back to R. Murray Schafer and describes the split of a sound’s origin and its electroacoustic reproduction.
Following this idea, visual scenerys are splitted from their original sound and combined with the sound environment of other settings.
My Piece Caladan is going to be performed as a permanent sound-installation at this year’s edition of the annual Ruhrpuls-Festival in Bochum, Germany (10/02/12 – 10/06/12).
The festival is a great mixture of visual and sonic art, live-music and different parties. Anyone in and around the Ruhr-Area shouldn’t miss that!
In august, my piece Caladan is part of the Exoplanetary playlist on basic.fm, in celebration of the Pixel Palace commission, Mariner 9 by Kelly Richardson (Spanish City Dome, Whitley Bay UK, Friday 3 – Sunday 19 August).
This weekend, my pieces “Zersplittert” and “Caladan-Exploration” are going to be performed at the Hilltown New Music Festival in Castlepollard, Ireland.

You find it here.
Monday Sounds is a project, I started in March 2011.
With this project, I want to put the audible world in the front of the perception.
Each monday, I’m going to upload one special sound from the “real-world”. I’m searching for sonic snippets, that seem worth listening to. If you like what you hear, feel free to download the sounds in the week of their appearance!
