Peter Ablinger:
BOOK OF RETURNS
aus: "Instruments &"

2013 (1985-2015)



Ensemble, Elektronik, Situationen, variable Formate und Dauern

ensemble, electronics, situations, variable formats and durations



"Book of Returns" is a collection of modules. Modules are usually 40 Seconds short and sometimes multiples of that. Modules can be: solo-pieces, solo-electronics, a cassette player, a single note or a scale, a performative situation, experiments with microphones, field recordings, picture projection, and, more exceptional, also ensemble situations - although a typical presentation definitely needs something like an ensemble: a mixture of instrumentalists, electronic performers and other.

The modules are played/connected without pause. With free choice of modules, order and number. But always the connection between modules, the edge, is the crucial part: the perfect cut.
