Digital Archives 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: CDs - DVDs

The CDs and DVDs listed here, produced in my private studio, contain recordings of organ improvisations on classical instruments as well as excerpts of studio work and electronic music demonstrations. Many of the instruments and programs with which these productions were made are no longer manufactured and are in the process of disappearing, so these recordings have special value as documents for posterity.
After 30 years of work with electro-acoustic largely computer-controlled means, it is certainly appropriate to write a quasi "biography" of this period. This is here the series of "retrospectives", which is a mixture of instruments, spaces, dates of origin and styles. Some clarity has dwindled, what remains is a quasi-naked impression of a 30-year sound production as mentioned above.

Please note
The CDs and DVDs are studio productions that are not commercially available.

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.>> Archiv I: Series

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.>>Archiv II

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.>>Archiv III

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”. 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.>> Archive IV

Additonal Texts
Schnitger- Stade
Trost Waltershausen
Archive V MC_6: 6-Channel Recording

This archive contains stereo mixes from the estate of productions that were originally recorded on 6-channel music cassettes with the Sansui WS-X1 in the years 1987 - 2014. The pieces presented here also show a broad spectrum of possibilities for creating sounds and shaping sound processes with the new technologies. The individual pieces have been given titles according to the available notes.>>Archiv V
