released June 23, 2014

Recorded in seven different public places (outdoors on the first five, indoors in the townhall and a museum on the last two tracks) of the city of Augsburg, these fragile electroacoustic duo improvisations attempt to integrate themselves into the soundscape (or vice versa), using ambient sound events like cues from a third player. The instruments used are no-input mixing board, effects, a miked cello-bow used for making the built structure of the town audible by scraping its surface, and recordings from a sound sculpture found along the way (by bicycle, hence the title “SoundCycle”) from one venue to the next, the so-called dance chimes.

The seven short concerts from which the excerpts on this album are taken were part of the project “Sounding D”, a series of events that took place in the summer of 2010 in 15 German cities with the aim of increasing the public’s exposure to new and experimental music. The soundscape composition “Sounding D” by sound artist Robin Minard commissioned for this occasion uses field recordings from all 15 cities involved. In their performances documented here, Zander/Fiebig also used samples from the field recordings made in Augsburg by Ludger Hennig, playing the recorded (and processed) fragments of a soundscape back into the live soundscape from which they originated. This sometimes creates surprising effects whenever everyday sounds are heard in places where they ‘do not belong’, which, like the improvisations as a whole, challenges conventional listening habits.

BAD ALCHEMY

Noch raumgreifender ist SoundCycle (ACC 1003, CD-R), eine Fahrradtour durch Augsburg, für die ZANDER/FIEBIG öffentliche 'Raumpunkte' anfuh- ren, u. a. den Ernst-Reuter- und den Holbeinplatz und das Textilmuseum, um das je spezifische Phonotop zu erfassen und improvisatorisch anzurei- chern mit No-input-Mischpult, Effektgeräten, dem Gekratze eines mikro- phonierten Cellobogens und - im rauschenden und bepfiffenen Japan- garten - einem Glockenspiel. Dazu wurden Samples von anderen Augs- burger Schauplätzen eingemischt und ins Rathaus getragen, während im Museum Spatzen Mehr Musik! tschilpen. Diese Reflexionen des Lebensumfeldes waren ein Beitrag zu Sounding D, einem Projekt, das Robin Minard, in Weimar Professor für elektroakustische Komposition und Klanggestaltung, konzipierte. Dabei wurden im letzten Jahr 15 Städte von Dreeeesd-n bis A-ggsb-rrrrg, Passsauuu und Eiiiis-n-ch im Zug bereist, um ihre Bewohner mit Soundwalks, Konzerten und Aktionen vor Ort für... Spatzen z. B. zu interessieren.
