Gasworks (CD)

GASWORKS_Cover„Gasworks“ by sonic artist Gerald Fiebig collects his sound installations, radiophonic compositions, and live performances relating to the former gasworks in Augsburg-Oberhausen. They were created between 2010 and 2016, some in collaboration with colleagues EMERGE and Christian Z. Müller. Among the compositional materials of the album are processed recordings of the sounds of gas and industrial machinery, stories told by a former gasworks employee, and live improvisations in the echo chamber of the large gas tank.

Sustained Development: Music for Bass Guitar 2010-2013

Music for Bass Guitar

Sounds improvised on the bass are used in the construction of the final pieces. The degree of cutting up and processing applied to the improvisations varies from piece to piece, but the compositional decisions made during the final edit always take precedence over the “live” element: “When cutting the prayer call in with hog grunts it doesn’t pay to be walking around the market place with a portable tape recorder.” (William S. Burroughs, Electronic Revolution)
