My piece “Soundtracking” is a composition that serves as an imaginary soundtrack for a horror/sci-fi film that could have been made in the 1980s. The piece was commissioned by the synthesizer trio Lange//Berweck//Lorenz in 2021 for their concert series “Very Refreshing Catalyst”, where they aim to revive the tradition of live synthesizer in new music.
Lange//Berweck//Lorenz premiered the piece at the Musik 21 Festival in Hannover on September 10, 2021 and performed it in Berlin on November 22nd, 2021 at Theater im Delphi, In her review of the Musik 21 Festival in the December 2021 issue of Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, music journalist Juana Zimmermann described Soundtracking as the “highlight of the festival.”
Lange//Berweck//Lorenz have also released a performance video of the piece that they shot in September 2021, which you can watch below.
