prospecting [SNDNG STTNS] – lp


THE DUO SOUNDING SITUATIONS – KLAUS JANEK AND MILENA KIPFMÜLLER – EXPLORES THE NOTION OF BRIDGING BY PROSPECTING INTO CONCRETE SOUNDS, SPOKEN WORDS AND MUSIC MATERIAL.
SIDE A OF THE ALBUM STARTS ITS WAY WITH THE RECORDINGS DONE BY GÜNTER KIPFMÜLLER OF BRAZILIAN TRADITIONAL IMPROVISED MUSIC OF THE ‚VIOLEIROS‘ IN THE 70‘S. THIS SOURCE MATERIAL, AS WELL AS THE SOUNDS OF THE OLD RECORDING DEVICE – A UHER REPORTER – IS COMBINED WITH ELECTRONIC PROCESSING AND THE MUSICAL ACTING OF [SNDNG STTNS] IN THE PRESENT, CONNECTING DIFFERENT HISTORICAL CONTEXTS, GEOGRAPHICAL LANDSPACES AND TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES OVER 40 YEARS.
SIDE B HOSTS MUSIC MINED FROM LANGUAGE – SOUNDS THAT ARE NOT PRIMARILY PRODUCED WITH A MUSICAL INTENTION: USERS OF A LIBRARY RECORD 20 SEC OF READING OF A BOOK PASSAGE INTO AN ARTISTIC INTERACTIVE SYSTEM. KLAUS JANEK AND MILENA KIPFMÜLLER EXCLUSIVELY USE THE VOICES OF THE AUDIENCE AND THE AUDIENCES‘ REACTIONS TO PERFORM AND ALSO TO TRANSFORM THEM LIVE INTO A MUSICAL COMPOSITION. THE PARTICIPATIVE PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION IS NAMED AFTER ANOTHER FORM OF PROSPECTING: THE ECHO SONAR – ECHOLOT. IN AN ONGOING RESEARCH THE TWO MEMBERS EXPLORE THE JUNCTION OF SEMANTICS AND MUSICALITY IN LANGUAGE AS SOURCE MATERIAL FOR COMPOSITION.
