Pulsar

The fascination for drone phenomena and the wish to actively examine them were important incentives for my path into Electroacoustic Music. „Pulsar“ is the attempt to make a repetitively pulsating noise loop function like a drone texture by treating it tonally. / Ein wichtiger Impuls für meinen Weg in die elektroakustische Musik war die Faszination durch Drone-Phänomene und der Wunsch nach aktiver Auseinandersetzung mit ihnen. „Pulsar“ ist der Versuch, einen repetitiv pulsierenden Geräusch-Loop durch klangliche Bearbeitung wie eine Drone-Textur wirken zu lassen.

Birthday Sonification Juan María Solare

This 50-second piece was created for the album Sn (Stannum) to mark the 50th birthday of composer Juan María Solare. It utilises four Pure Data sine wave oscillators which start at 1966 Hz (year of birth), 8(00) Hz (month of birth), 11(0) Hz (day of birth), 2016 Hz (year of 50th birthday), thus following Juan María Solare’s biography in a very abstract manner. Every 5 seconds (one-tenth of 50), an action is performed: once all oscillators are running steadily, they are switched to random mode in the same order, now creating varying tones between 0 Hz and their starting pitch at a Pure Data metronome speed of 50. In the last phase, the oscillators are switched off successively.
