Peter Ablinger:
INSTRUMENTS AND PHONOGRAPHIES
(1997)2015
various instrumentations and durations





notebook entry 1997: "Statt Instrumente und Rauschen: / Instrumente und Foto / Instrumentalklänge ähnlich in Umwelt Aufnahme einbetten wie ins Rauschen"



Excerpt from the preface:

Instruments and Phonographies consists (so far) of the following pieces:

Pedestrian Zone (4'30)
Department Store (2'27)
Coffee House (3'07)
Halls (3'28)
Pendlerbus (2'55)
Plabutschtunnel (9'52)

Pieces are individual and can be performed in any selection or order.

Each piece is a stereo "phonography" (field recording) grounded by a single ensemble tenuto. In most pieces the ensemble tenuto should not be heard really - although there should be a delicate difference when the ensemble were NOT playing!

The Instrumentation is variable but only for instruments that are able to play sustained microtonal pitches. Some pitches that have no microtonal deviation (or no more than about 20c) can also be played by tempered instruments, but only if they can play sustained notes without repetion or tremolo (e.g. accordion).
