Talk Show

flute, clarinet, piano, amplified violin, violin, cello


Most musical material in “Talk Show” is derived from audio-to-midi-conversions of political TV-discussions – interpreted freely “by hand”, trying to find some sense in the glitchy and impossible-to-play results.

Recorded at Pina Bausch Theater, Folkwang Uni, Essen, on 11.01.2022 by Arthur Jogerst. Performed by Ensemble Perspektive.
