KUBISCH, CHRISTINA: Licht Himmel
Taken from a permanent 14-channel sound and light installation occupying the giant Oberhausen Gasometer, this stereo remix makes excellent listening on its own. Especially in darkness. The sonic materials employed include the now rarely heard Trautonium, glass harmonica, Tibetan metal bowls, double bass, field recordings, synthesiser, voice, tuning forks, glass gong and a glass cornet. Each sound speaks for itself and has a life of its own. This is a special form that requires special listening, or perhaps not listening but allowing the environment around you to be transfigured by sound.
