Ernst Krenek ordered one of the first modular synthesizer systems for home use, customized for the composer by Donald Buchla, in 1967. The audible atoms - as Krenek called the sinusoidal tones - along with saw waves, rectangular waves, modulation and filter revealed a new dimension of sound synthesis.

About 180 years earlier Wolfgang A. Mozart composed his Clarinet Concerto written for the basset clarinet which was manufactured by k.u.k. instrument maker Theodor Lotz in 1788 and optimized by Anton Stadler. Mozart was in close dialogue with Stadler and dedicated his concert to him.

For the Ring der Nibelungen Richard Wagner commissioned the construction of the Wagner tuba to bridge the sounds of horn, trombone and tuba. The instrument, which is similar to the natural horn, was also used in Strawinskys Le Sacre du Printemps or Richard Strauss opera Elektra.

But whats the situation for composers today?

How close is the communication between instrument makers and composers?

What effect does digital sound production and computer music have on contemporary compositions?

These and other questions will be discussed by composers and performers at this Round Table.
