EQ Music

live diffusion of eight-channel digital audio (2011)

"EQ Music" comprises four field recordings from Los Angeles and Berlin. From within these recordings, the six most prominent frequencies are isolated by means of narrow band pass filters. Over the course of the piece, each of the filters is increasingly detuned. The dynamic relation of the filtered frequencies, their occurrence, disappearance or absence, is mixed live by the performer(s).

The duration of the piece is 20í. Field recordings from Gerhard Schultzís "Mapping a plastic number" (2009, Los Angeles) and by Volker Straebel (2011, Berlin). First performed at The Wulf, Los Angeles, on June 19th, 2011, by Gerhard Schultz and Volker Straebel.
