Mirlitones at ICMC / Totally Huge New Music Festival, Perth, Australia, 2013
During 14-18 August, 2013 Mirlitones was shown as part of the ICMC 2013 and the Totally Huge New Music Festival at the Kidogo Art Institute, Fremantle, Australia. For the occasion we made a new computer program based on data taken from seven planets. The length of the pipes is related to the diameter of these planets and the elapse in time of the dynamics for each pipe is deduced from day and night cycles. Each pipe is treated differently resulting in a slow, hypnotizing, ever changing sound mix. A new phase in the development of the work.
Another, practical novelty is that the pipes were bought in Australia while all other essential materials were brought in the plane as personal luggage. A formula that can be performed worldwide with little transport costs.
August 17 bass clarinet player Krista Martynes improvised together with the installation after a short introduction on the work by Peter Bosch.
Sound recordings: (play/pause at the left part of the bars)
The 1st track is a recording from the centre of the space when working as an autonomous installation, the 2nd is an excerpt of a recording made by Johannes S. Sistermanns of the live improvisation.
