Recorder and Live-Electronics

The counterpoint of the traditional instrument recorder in combination with live-electronics. In compositions and improvisations guitar pedals, multitrack and software such as MAX/ MSP are being used.

Inspired by the realisation of compositions by Steve Reich and John Cage and by the collaboration with hans w. koch, Andreas Wagner, Clarence Barlow … this project was born which I am actively expanding and developing.

CD “Electronic Counterpoint” – compositions by Marc Sabat, Ulrich Krieger, Sascha L. Lemke, Georg Hajdu and Manfred Stahnke.

Dietmar Bonnen, Cora Schmeiser and Lucia Mense got to know each other when participating in a project at Museum Kolumba in Köln/ Germany. Since then they enjoy sounds and ideas. They share similar musical interests, such as music from the middle ages, Dada, improvisation – and are likewise fascinated by the connection of speech and music.

In their projects Hildegard von Bingen and John Cage meet Daniil Charms; Oswald von Wolkenstein and Manfred Niehaus join Isang Yun; Kurt Schwitters befriends Hölderlin …
