KLANGWERKSTATT FÜR NEUE MUSIK 2019
In Penumbra (penumbra) I explore the enormous possibilities of a specific and non-standard contemporary chamber ensemble that often sounds more like a band. A patchwork of different fragments and contrasts, fast changes of form and tempo, groovy rhythms and polyrhythmic structures, followed by extremely fast tempo and virtuoso passages that challenge the musicians in this ensemble not only as ensemble players but also as soloists. Through the use of electric guitar effects, I have expanded the sound palette of the ensemble with the possibilities of the electric guitar, from distorted to surreal. Musical gestures and their transformation through effects, unpredictable orchestration solutions – in this piece, groove and sounds become a synthesis of different genres in one and the same sound world.
