dings #1 is the beginning of my edition of works. in addition to improvised live electronics, the composition of computer music is my chief musical activity. starting from mostly self-recorded sound material, the pieces were developed with the vasp and amp programs. the script language of these programs enables a quick and “simple” working with a large number of sounds, routines and parameters.

the pieces “musik ist ein dickes waldtier” (“music is a fat forest animal”), “variations from piano” and “quartett für gruben & sträucher” (“quartet for pits and shrubs”) are originally conceived for 4 to 8 loudspeakers. each loudspeaker is to be understood as an independent instrument in the space, whereby the polyphony and the metamorphoses of the sound characteristics of the individual voices become more comprehensible. the three pieces appear on the album in a specially customized stereo version.

for dings #1 recordings, among others, by gloria damijan (piano), fm einheit (objects), michael moser (cello), field recordings of protests in athens and the recording of an improvisation of the late, great synthesizer virtuoso dieter feichtner were deconstructed, transformed and incorporated into concrete and abstract “thingamajigs” with mundane, extraordinary, personal and fictive traits.
