Peter Ablinger:
KLEINE TROMMEL UND UKW-RAUSCHEN
("CONCEPTIO")
2000
6', snare drum, FM-receiver




Snare Drum and FM-noise ("Conceptio")

1 small snare drum, with little resonance, to allow the finest possible difference to the FM-noise. The radio receives white noise - and no station. But if you suceed by ABSOLUTELY INPERCEPTIBLY mixing in a bit of a station, then it is allowed: as an inperceptible irritation; one may not be shure; one might miss it; BETTER ONLY AS WHITE NOISE rather than a recognizable signal!

From 8 loud ossia-beats on snare drum written in the score a maximum of only one per performance is played and, in every performance another of the ossia-beats. Or OFTEN NO ONE. (And, only "once in a life time" of an interpretor - and only if he/she had played the piece several times - maybe 2 beats). (From: score, description, translated by Bill Dietz, edited by Austin Buckett) )




Drawing from sketchbooks for "Conceptio"


KLEINE TROMMEL UND UKW-RAUSCHEN ("CONCEPTIO")

(aus dem Partitur-Vorwort)

1 kleiner UKW-Empfänger, ohne Rauschunterdrückung, zwischen den Sendestationen. 1 kleine Trommel, mit wenig Resonanz (schmale Zarge), um die feinst-mögliche Differenz zum UKW-Rauschen bilden zu können.

Das Radio kann auf maximale Lautstärke gestellt werden um mit einem pp-Spiel der kleinen Trommel gleich laut zu sein. Der Trommelwirbel darf niemals einen Vordergrund zum UKW-Rauschen bilden, sondern lediglich einen leichten Klangfarbenwechel erzeugen.
