The project is conceived to extend over five years and eight concerts, 2001 to 2005, and sits in the historical context of electronic music.
The concerts follow a well defined structure − the score − no notes but a temporal and functional structure.
base-structure of the score
gründler / schimana
material creation 1) freezing 2) regulation 3)
data acquisition 1) analysis 2) synthesis 3)
In the first part the material is generated live, parallel a compter records at specific moments the audio data.
In the second part short loops will be worked-over with analogue and digital processes and stacked as body of sound, the computer is analysing the stored material from the first part.
In the third part based on the data from the analysis, the computer synthesizes the sound into a sound stream.
Relevant to the present and corresponding with the first part we act as musicians and improvisers with our instruments − the materials free avalability.
One step back, corresponding with the second part, we act in the context of sampling und looping.
Two steps back, corresponding with the second part; tape music − in the sence of sound regulation, we lean back and regulate, if at all, the volume.
The other way, the way of the machine, is going forward. Most possible intervention by humans − improvisation, some intervention − sampling looping, no intervention − the autonomous machine.
The video projection is simultaneously stage light and score. The temporal structure becomes discernable from the changes.
In each city the score of the base-structure will be left behind to artists on location for their own interpretation. these interpretations result in the respective performances in a net-concert at real locations and in virtual space.
At each performing location will stay several days (3 - 5) developing further our machine, structure and improvisation part.
Each concert is preceded by a showing of a 21 − minute CD, a condensation of performances to date.
