Work description

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.
The slow pulsation of a piano sound alienated by granulation, spatialization, and reverb with accompanying artifacts are the main elements of Solo 6. Two minimal motifs in the piano part and a more rapid pulsation stem from this; as a compound structure, they are finally operating against a cluster granulation, shifted by a quartertone.
