Death Metal Performance

by Malte Struck and Mark Wehrmann

13/06/2012

Commonly Hamburg based artists Malte Struck and Mark Wehrmann deal with the subjects sound, space and death. In their Death Metal Performances the artists revert to subcultures of Pop-Music as well as to art historical motives like Living Sculpture and Orgien Mysterien Theater. While society supersedes the transcience of our existence, they go straight into it and blast everything in their way. They are recent monsters, executioners of an obsolete, doomed species.

Concert with works by Lejet, Sciarrino, Hurel and premiere of Niklaus Erismann's setting of Jürg Halter’s poem “Weltfreie Zeit”, staging by Sam Graf

Two presentations: 16 June 2010, 5.30 pm & 8.30 pm

Details

Niklaus Erismann’s music to the poem “Weltfreie Zeit” by Jürg Halter is a kind of complementary music that transforms the poetic imagery into sounds and comments on them, causing the (sung) words to reverberate.

Edith Lejet’s “La voix of voiles”, composed in 1989, was inspired by a poem by Pierre Reverdy. The piece was commissioned by the “Festival de Sable” on the occasion of Reverdy’s 100th birthday.The following notation appears at the beginning of the piece: “quasi parlando: comme la voix de quelqu’un qui marmonne pour lui-même de façon obsessionnelle” : out of these sounds the piece develops freely, in chromatic lines, broken here and there by brute chord clusters.

Philippe Hurel writes about his work “Loops 2”: “In this Loops, I have added an extra level to the principle of looping. The piece is so constructed that the process of cell trans-formation always brings you back to the motif announced at the outset. Although the music may seem to be undergoing perpetual transformation because of the morphing process, the listener will nevertheless feel it is going round in circles, since each long procedure brings you back to the starting point, like thelittle local loops that you can hear throughout the piece.”

 

“L ‘Addio a Trachis II” was adapted in 1987 by Maurizio Pisati for solo guitar. In this composition Salvatore Sciarrino leaves the fully self-contained, highly virtuosic world characteristic of his solo pieces, in favor of a non-polarized world that is not contradictory but complementary – one that allows movement.

 

After the many flickering ornaments (pulled into the vortex by an astonishing, breathless tempo), we hear a mysterious, floating star-melody counter- pointed by a short, noisy sign of a light, festive frenzy.
