what do coffee machines, neon tubes and gameboys have in common? they can all be found as the creators of sound on the cd hearings. everyday objects as instruments and unconventional approaches as a principle: this premiere cd from transacoustic research’s newly founded label offers, along with the reinterpretation of language samples into musical material, also the sound of the jew’s harp as the basis for electronic music, homemade laptops, and sounds from hard drives’ writing heads.
the individual tracks, which range from pieces that are nearly dance rhythms to calm contemplative stretches, prove that these unconventional approaches can lead to impressive musical results.
hearings, events organised by the institute for transacoustic research, offer
presentations of experiments and projects displaying a transacoustic character.
the hearings make a significant contribution to the more precise circumscription and investigation of the field of research. the experiments and projects presented are mainly from the area of audio art and experimental music. also appearing, however, are collaborations and individual contributions from the fine arts, literature, humanities, dance, musical theatre, performance, electronics-technology, etc.
this CD is a compilation of selected contributions by:
• the vegetable orchestra
• boris hauf
• paul divjak
• das fax mattinger& gerald rossbacher
• jörg piringer
• sergej mohntau
• helmut kahlert
