     Stranger Becoming

Hans Koch – clarinet / Frantz Loriot – viola / Jonas Kocher – accordion   – The Swiss-based trio Koch/Loriot/Kocher formed in the summer of 2020 and has kept developing a distinct musical identity ever since. The band makes use of insistently repeated motifs, broken melodic lines and occasional tonal harmonies cohabiting with pure sound production. The three musicians develop their respective materials in tension with each other: they are able to merge their sounds at any moment, but just as well might evolve their individual voices for a long time in parallel, without a priori seeking unity. The band’s cohesion is achieved through the intense quality of listening and deep interaction that the three have honed, as well as by the blend of timbres that is reminiscent of European folk music.

” Telepathie Orchester I + II “

Idee: Guy Bettini / /      
Mo 22.06.2020 : TeleOrchester I              So 28.06.2020: TeleOrchester II

This is is the second Concert of the SWISS TeleOrchestra
When making music telepathically, each musician is alone in his or her rooms to improvise with the other musicians in isolation. No musician can hear or see the other player. Thanks to a synchronized signal, each individual musician starts the audio recording in their own rooms and plays for 40-50 minutes, depending on their musical perception. Afterwards, the individual audio recordings are stopped and sent to the studio. The tracks of the individual musicians are synchronized exactly with the time code. The sound engineer only makes an effort to balance the volume. Only then does the music of the entire ensemble emerge as a unified work and become an audible experience.Thanks to recording technology, the music of a telepathic ensemble is heard for the first time in the world

 & MUSICOS CUBANOS`Intakt Records



Ich entschloss mich, den Selbstversuch so zu gestalten, dass ich während 24 Stunden jede Stunde wiederholt drei kleine Musikstücke von ca. 2 Minuten spielen würde.
Das erste Stück ist eine ausgeschriebene Komposition von Cornelius Cardew (Mountains).
Das zweite Stück ist eine Komposition von Thelonious Monk (Gallop`s Gallop).
Das dritte Stück ist eine Improvisation mit Mehrklängen (Multiphonics).
Dies ergibt 24 Takes von ca. 6 Minuten. Ich werde nach jedem Take eine spontane Notiz (musikalische Bewertung) aufschreiben, welcher später von Gaudenz Badrutt (Supervisor) unabhängig von meinen Notizen bewertet wird.
Die Länge und das Tempo der Stücke werden nach jedem Durchgang aufgeschrieben.
Der Körperzustand, die Motivation, das Material (Blätter) und die Technik (musikalisch) werden nach jeder Aufnahme bewertet.
Die Körperwärme und der Puls werden vor und nach jeder Aufnahme neu gemessen.
Das Ganze wird zusätzlich auf Video festgehalten.
