Hanno Leichtmann: Nouvelles Aventures
3. – 9. AUGUST 2016, 11:00 – 18:00 UHR (EXCEPT MONDAY, 8 AUGUST)
Hanno Leichtmann presents his own very individual approach to the task. As in his previous installations, he distils his sound material exclusively from a thematically fixed (sound) archive, in this case concert recordings, lectures and discussions from 70 years of New Music history. These subjectively-chosen sounds were sent through his unique machinery of voltage- controlled (micro-) loops, recorded, then finally pieced together in the studio to form the present installation/ audio drama. Here Leichtmann concentrates on the pure, original sound of the (sonic) archive: he primarily applies the traditional parameters of early electronic (tape) music (amplitude, pitch/speed, playback direction, series/cuts, but most of all repetition.
