Monday Sounds – Facebook Page

If you like, like the new Facebook Page of the Monday Sounds.
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!

Linux Audio Conference 2012

I’m glad to announce, that my piece Caladan was selected for a concert performance at this years edition of the Linux Audio Conference (April 12-15, 2012). The conference is hosted by the CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics) of the Stanford University in California, USA.

The Linux Audio Conference is the international conference about Open Source Software for music, sound and other media with Linux as the main platform. 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the event and it is the first time the LAC takes place in the United States. It brings together musicians, composers, sound artists, software developers, researchers and engineers working with Linux and other Open Source Software as an open, stable, professional platform for audio and media research and music production.

 

Caladan

Caladan

At an unknown time,
in an undated year,
a no further defined species encounters an undiscovered planet.

Spacy Sounds

Next Saturday (11/12/2011), my new piece Caladan will be premiered in the concert Spacy Sounds in the Schönbrunner Schlosstheater in Vienna. The piece was written for the new “Spatial-Acoustics-Instrument” of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, which is a combination system of Ambisonics and Wavefield Synthesis. This instrument will be introduced to the public during this concert. Next to my piece, there will be music by Karlheinz Essl, Richard Karger, Katharina Clement, Marko Ciciliani,  Caroline Profanter, Igor Lintz-Maues, Onur Dülger and more.

A part of Caladan will be previewed two days earlier at the same place, during a gala of the university. Thereby, single sounds of the piece will be gestically spatialised by the usage of two Theremin-Controllers.
