pendelspiel

  • for punched tape music box and pendulums
  • duration c. 3 minutes
  • world premiere on 7 June 2014 in Augsburg by Joachim F.W. Schneider

In this piece the oscillation patterns of 15 pendulums in a proportion of 51:52:53 etc. (to 65) are set to music. The turning points of each pendulum are assigned to notes. The motions of the pendulums and the sound of the music box form a unified whole - difficult to decide whether the motion of pendulums is set to music or the music of the music box is visualized.
