Wednesday 17th January at 10pm Xing and εὖ eû (eu eu) present at Raum Stack Music, sound performance by German composer Konrad Sprenger.
Stack Music is the new work by Konrad Sprenger out on Pan records. Having felt restrained by the limits of traditional instruments and the techniques tied to them, composer and artist, Konrad Sprenger spent years developing various algorithms and custom instruments to realize his work. His recent focus has been on rhythmic patterns based on the Euclidean algorithm, using a computer-controlled multi-channel electric guitar. His unique system can create complex rhythmical patterns whilst tuning the strings during performance – sounding at once like an electronic instrument, a drum computer, a guitar, a harpsichord, even at times as a full orchestra. His music is both informed by early American folk music and its descendants, and influenced by the insistent rhythms from Minimalism, Krautrock and Techno.
