The series provides a platform for local and international artists/musicians, who oscillate between various musical and artistic genres. Within the framework of „Wavering Worlds“, multiple forms of multi-media performances and concerts are presented.
Cameron Deas is an experimental musician based in London. Currently working with electronics, he uses an integrated array of synthesis techniques that are triggered by, and in turn manipulate, external acoustic sound sources, in and out of conjunction with pure electronic sounds. Working in an entirely live environment, Deas creates a kind of real-time musique concrete, resulting in an abstract yet organic contemporary electronic music. Also known for his work as a guitarist, Deas’s debut LP for this project, String Studies, is a suite that focuses on using the 12 string acoustic guitar as the sole sound source of this live musique concrete: a wooden frame to an electronic music. String Studies will be released this July on Alter.
“…the notes of his 12 string acoustic are raw material for violent sculpture, torn apart and flung about separately by the manipulations of his modular synth, bouncing around the space in a hyper-kinetic match of sound squash.” The Wire, April 2014
Wheras beats took the centre stage in the past works of Linz resident Andreas Kurz, his current stuff is affected by a more abstract mood and field recordings. Arrangements of small, delicate gestures merge to form larger reverberating atmospheres that open out into a rewarding and intense listening experience.
The vehement Tondenker Philipp Zappel creates fog-shrouded soundscapes via analog sound synthesis.
