about

Écart (2017)

"A piece for and with the Vinylograph. Analog charm arises where unevenness or deviations, consciously or accidentally, give rise to a very special charm and color. Anyone who tries to accompany records at home with instruments that are tuned exactly to the chamber tone may notice that sometimes an interval gap opens up, which can grow from small microtonal beats to a semitone or more. Apart from the moods used in the recording, this is mainly due to the fact that the playback and also recording speeds are subject to slight fluctuations, in some cases even consciously. That hardly matters to normal hearing. For this piece, however, these smallest differences are the main thing. With a range of instruments (various stringed instruments, metallophones, saxophones) that are partly tuned into each other and mutually intertwined with each other, as well as with a theremin sounding out of tune, the difference tested on the record players present in the room becomes the musical material of the piece. In the process, plates themselves will also be used as sound generators. With the live recording of the piece by the Vinylograph the piece experienced another shift, which in certain moments, the differences to the also played reference tones on the turntables again swing to zero. Two pages have a record, and on the A-side everything will circle around the tone a, on the B-side around the note b. The musical material remains, but it's slower on the B side, just as if you were playing the record at the wrong speed ... (C.B.)" text by Cornelius Berkowitz
