von Mark Andre

As with his composition ›üg‹, which Ensemble Modern premiered in 2008, in his cycle ›rwḥ‹ again Mark Andre is working with so called echograms. The acoustic reflections of the space are recorded and measured in these »acoustic photos«. The barely audible sounds of the space are modified using live electronic techniques and mixed with the acoustically produced sounds.

The first complete performance of Mark Andre’s ›rwḥ‹ cycle will be given by six Hanover’s choirs and Ensemble Modern at the Kuppelsaal in Hanover in May 2022 as part of the KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen under director Ingo Metzmacher, followed by a further performance at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
