Lokale Orbits / Solo 7
for viola and 4 channel tape (2010, 11´30´´)
sound examples

Lokale Orbits started as a sequence of pieces for solo instrument and tape, whereby sounds, played by the musicians concerned, were recorded for further processing.
After some Orbits with instrumental parts restricted to a few singular gestures I wanted to include instrumental voices again in a more active role. In Solo 7 algorithmically generated phrases (in a rather traditional sense, ordinario, as well as played behind the bridge) and singular viola gestures, which were also basic material for buffer granulation, are confronted with electronics. Altogether material is still reduced, relations between the two layers are established via basic aspects of perception: pulsation, fundamental pitch, structure of rests.
