Mondsüchtigkeit [ Moonwalking ]

Mondsüchtigkeit [ Moonwalking ] is a 4 movement graphic score inspired by sound produced by hand-pulled tape through open tape recorder. Variability of speed and almost meditative concentration of the performer while pulling pre-recorded sound between tape recorder’s wheels greatly affects the final outcome, sound textures and dynamics. Geometry of the elements as well as number of lines in each figure is main subject of the structure analysis. Instrument(s) are directed to produce floating drone-like sound and to invent pitch changes according to the variability of geometrical perspectives.

Composition gives impression of clear space in which eclectic sound forms occur. Electronic processing of the strings is not excluded.
