Ten years ago, I spent several hours sitting in a room with Alvin Lucier as students at New England Conservatory performed some of his pieces. Ten years after, my first-ever piece written for an ensemble, Soundtracking, will be on the same program as his piece Risonanza at the KONTAKTE ’22 Festival at Akademie der Künste, all thanks to the electroacoustic music trio Lange//Berweck//Lorenz, who also commissioned the piece from me. I will also have the pleasure of having my piece performed alongside works by two other fantastic composers, Kirsten Reese, who is also my bandmate in the electronic music ensemble Böseblick, as well as Midori Hirano, whom I had the pleasure of sharing the stage at the 2020 edition of the Heroines of Sound Festival in Berlin.

KONTAKTE ’22 x Lange//Berweck//Lorenz
On Friday, 23 September at 6 pm, the Berlin-based electro-acoustic trio Lange//Berweck//Lorenz will perform works by Kirsten Reese, Midori Hirano, Korhan Erel and Alvin Lucier for synthesizer trio, some on historical synthesizers belonging to the Akademie der Künste. The trio will also perform “HARK 1b” together with Christoph Ogiermann, an attempt at live adaptation of electroacoustic projects.
Silke Lange, Sebastian Berweck and Martin Lorenz perform on stage with a laboratory of analogue and digital synthesizers and machines; live performance on the instruments is supplemented by video and light design.
