Blinded - 2018

I use several forms of electronics in my artistic practice.

For live audio and video processing I am most immersed within MaxMSP and Jitter. For the building of small MIDI Controllers or little Soundmonsters I work with Arduino and low-tech DIY circuits. No-Input mixing is one of my favourite sound sources and a lovely combination with the human voice and the recorder.

When playing Solorecitals, I want to show the recorder in combination with the voice and the resulting multitude of faces:

from beautiful to ugly, from serene to scary.

To widen the extremes, I combine my passion for the traditional instrument with my knowledge in (live) electronics, creating a tension between old and new.

Notable performances: Museumsnacht Köln 2019 – LTK4, Open Recorder Days Amsterdam 2019 

 

I also play in collaboration with other electronic musicians. Here an example of my project with Sjoerd Leijten (NL, Supercollider)

Flipping the tape the first track radiooscillating on the b-side is a slow and stretched-out collage piece that features a real-time processed recorder played by Verena Barié and sampled radiowaves. The album ends with Drowned World and features again Verena Barie on recorder. Taking the recorder to ear pearcing extremes – having the recordings heavily processed and mangled with audio programming environment supercollider, the work investigates micro-rhythms and textures and would be a fitting soundtrack to a digital exorcism.
