Based on his sound installations with various sound archives, Hanno Leichtmann has conceived a series in the Konzerthaus Berlin, each of which brings a special instrumentalist into dialogue with himself in a multi-channel setting. The concerts are a mixture of sound installation, improvisation and graphic score interpretation in the presence of the performing player, who is also the living “archive” of the installation.
Leichtmann sends subjectively selected sounds through his machine park of voltage-controlled samplers/loopers and then assembles these newly designed sounds into a multi-channel sound installation. To do this, he extracts a large number of individual sounds or clusters, layers, repitches, stretches and processes them using different methods of early electronic (tape) music, and thus composes a unique, modern soundtrack for the two performers.
At the start of the series on 25.06. Hanno Leichtmann has invited the unique piano player Magda Mayas from Berlin, as well as the exceptional percussionist Dirk Rothbrust from the Ensemble Musikfabrik from Cologne.
