Tremor (2007)

Stereo piece, duration 10’29”.

This piece was composed with material recorded during the creation of the «Rigid String Geometry» installation. Tremor is from “trembling” and hints at the vibrating string being the source of sound. The piece was commissioned for the CD that is given out to visitors of the Franz-Liszt-Museum Weimar, and appears as an excerpt on this CD.

While the first part of the piece (which is presented at the bottom of this document) is using a pushing dramaturgy with melodic gestures like glissandi, the second part dissolves this dramaturgy into a more organic space-time canvas that signifies the piece’s origin of sound installation.
