Digital Archive in the Web
The production of electronic sounds is still very young and topical, nevertheless, historical archiving took place as a result of the rapid technical development. The diverse pieces, here collected, show the different creative possibilities of the new technology: sound synthesis, pitch alteration and vocal editing and their mixture in collages of sound. Often you can no longer discern the source nor the mode of production. The classical differentiation of the sound world returns to an almost chaotic variety of possibilities.
By publishing the digital archives in the Web, the sound world becomes global and shows herein the universality of the physical sound system and its possibilities, which have natural causes.
Archive I: Series
This archive contains pieces or parts of pieces compiled in series. You can get an impression of the rich variety of electronic music with regard to the history of the object as well as to the person.
Archive II: Recording on DA 38 / 88
This archive in progress will contain great part of the work of a lifetime, making it open to the public. The pieces of this archive were originally recorded with 8 tracks on the DA 38 / 88 of Tascam, arranged in chronological order.
Archive III: Recording on DAT
This archive will become a library of electronic music recorded on DAT. The pieces produced in the course of circa 30 years are either original stereo recordings or tape compositions. The selected pieces are numerically arranged not chronologically.
Archive IV: Virtual Organ
In addition to the organ pieces of other archives, this archive contains improvisations and modifications of organ compositions of classical works not conceptualized for organ. They demonstrate how you can modify the structure and sound of given pieces and they play compositions for orchestra with the sound of an organ. The improvisations should enable you to hear as well as the diversity of the tone colours of an organ, classical and “denatured”.
>> Archiv IV
The productions in this archive are an attempt to approach the new reality of virtual organs and to enhance them by the actual technology whose results may sound strange at first. Additional texts should make access easier.
