Text im Klang is a laboratory, where medial interlacings with a focal point on impulse are put into practice. Again in 2016, text fragments initiate compositions, when realised, the impulse-texts are read by an actor, to reflect the multi-levelled genesis of contemporary chamber music through literature.

Medial interlacing can cultivate diverse aims and different qualities, within the project (process) Text im Klang the focus lies on the impulse. Olga Flor, Valerie Fritsch, Thomas Stangl and Andreas Unterweger are invited to provide texts, which will initiate the compositional processes of Andres Gutierrez, Mauro Hertig, Alexander Kaiser and Marina Poleukhina. The intention of the project is not a classical setting such as words to music, nor translations with voices, nor tonal representations of the texts, but rather texts functioning as movens with their for example rhythmic and syntactic qualities, within their linguistic sound timbre, as semantic abutment. The performers are also included in the process and work on the realisation of the composition together with the composer.


Writers, composers and performers will reflect on and discuss the production process at an Open Brunch on 23.4.


Here you can find the biographies of all participating artists.
