Duo ad lib:
Andreas F. Staffel, Composition & Piano
Julius Holtz, Composition & Electronics
Duration: 70 minutes
Location: Wabe, Danziger Str. 101, 10405 Berlin
In the first part of the concert as part of the EnCounterpoints 2019 festival, complex electronic sounds based on Julius Holtz's album Elementarklang will be transferred into a conventional notation font. The score, newly designed by Andreas F. Staffel for piano, toypiano and live electronics, will be premiered before the break. Based on the material of the CD, completely new, "human" interpretation possibilities are created through the inclusion of keyboard instruments.
In the second part, compositions by Andreas F. Staffel, such as the piano piece "Fluctuations" and works from his CD "Treibgut", will be designed and modified by Julius Holtz in an electronic remix. The resulting sound mutations leave the outgoing basic structure of the pieces untouched. The resulting fusion of individual layers with beats and sounds becomes a unique listening experience. The concept of translation and transmission shows how two completely different compositional approaches can inspire each other and complement each other in a wonderful way. The act of translating foreign material becomes an independent artistic work. Following the Double Concerto, there will be a joint improvisation by LouLou and ad lib for the first time.
