Berlin premiere of “Soundtracking”

My piece “Soundtracking” is a composition that serves as an imaginary soundtrack for a horror/sci-fi film that could have been done in the 1980s. The piece was commissioned by the synthesizer trio Lange//Berweck//Lorenz in 2021. The trio will premiere the piece in Berlin on November 22nd at Theater im Delphi, following the Hannover premiere on September 10. Please find more information on the series “Very Refreshing Catalyst” as well as the concert program below.

Lange//Berweck//Lorenz have brought the tradition of live synthesizer in new music back from the dead, coaxing new power from old musical traditions. Now comes another update of musical legacies with “Very Refreshing Catalyst.” More electronics, more video, more delicacy and more space travel for analog and digital (sound) techniques! The program includes two world premieres, such as Malte Giesen’s video score, a soundtrack of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and Korhan Erel’s “Soundtracking”, which makes electric discharges and pneumatic hissing audible. Furthermore, Martin Lorenz will leave the synthesizers completely out in “Rauscharbeit” this evening, and in Daniela Fantechi’s “Within a Dream” organic sounds are very carefully piled up and sometimes interrupted by the chirping of crickets. Or was it a UFO after all?
