Selected Works


(Ionosphere) for organ and multichannel live-electronics
organ: Wolfgang Kogert

Live-performance at Hofburgkapelle (Chapel of the Hofburg Imperial Palace), Vienna, 22.6.2018. The piece is for live organ and 6-channel electronics, this is a stereo mixdown version.
The focus of the piece lies on the organ's sounds usually almost unhearable and unnoticed due to being quite, far from the listener, blurred by the acoustics of the space or considered artefacts accommodating the “proper” sound. The wind from the blower, the tiny nuances and changes on the border between wind and tones, frequency beatings from the stops' combinations. Electromagnetic sounds and fields recorded with special microphones create the electronic layer of the piece.

Needless Needles

a generative composition for Pure Data

‘needless needles’ is a generative music composition for Pure Data programming language, exploring high-frequency intervals and combination tones using custom-designed micro-detuned voices. These high-frequency intervals tend to produce so-called ‘otoacoustic emissions’ — an extra layer of sonic sensations within a listener’s inner ear itself, as a reaction to these specific frequencies. Due to the generative nature of the piece, it will sound differently each time it is being played (if played from the original puredata-patch).

The piece uses a set of 3 core custom-designed voices. Each voice has a basic frequency plus 16 sub-voices detuned in the micro-range range of 0.0001 Hz to 1 Hz against the main frequency of the oscillator. In addition it has 3 sub-oscillators generating low-frequency related to one of the main high-frequency voices, and a special spatialisation cross-relative filtering section widening the spatial effect.
