Daniel Teige & Volkmar Klien
Taking advantage of the cycloramic potential of EMPAC’s Studio 1, German composers and sound artists Daniel Teige and Volkmar Klien present works created or adapted for a 360° aural environment. Daniel Teige’s quirky sound collages combine ambient sound with spare, elegant musical progressions, for an effect that is at once classically restrained and whimsical. Volkmar Klien will be remixing his recent composition Start-Ziel-Siege, in which washes of feedback float over computer-generated percussion, for the dozens of speakers in Studio 1. The result of their Multichannel Residencies is music of absorbing—even entrancing—complexity that surrounds and immerses the listener.
