Black Box and electronics
duration: 14'

The pieces of the Compound series are based on sonic material from my everyday life. The materials are organised into a network structure, which grows continuously, independent of actual pieces. The network consists of recordings, their transcriptions and derivatives which are interconnected by phenomenological similarities. Compound No.5: CONSTRUCTION ADJUSTMENT was written for the Black Box, a custom percussion instrument with an interchangeable surface and some other features. The piece is based on recordings of: My favorite Sushi Restaurant in Berlin Kreuzberg; A shopping mall; Construction Workers in my backyard; The renovation of a friend's appartment; The setting-up of the recording equipment; Wind Clipping in the microphone on a train; Cooling hot plates in my kitchen.
