Lokale Orbits / Duo 1
for violin, bass clarinet and 4 channel tape (2008, 19´30´´)
sound examples

Lokale Orbits started as a sequence of pieces for solo instrument and tape, whereby sounds, played by the musicians concerned, were recorded for further processing.
In Duo 1 instrumental and tape part of the main section are conceived as a duo each. A few sounds and playing techniques of the violin and the bass clarinet are the basic material for the instrumental parts and granular layers. Simple elements like ostinato, pulsation, the building of phrases, reference to a fundamental and the tension between different fundamentals respectively chords are the central point of slow transformations and oscillations, rather continuously in the electronic part and - by permutation, addition and omission of gestures - rather discontinuously in the instrumental part.
