The esc medien kunst labor invites you to the concert "Time Slice Transmitter" in the context of Open music!


With "Time Slice Transmitter", "open music" is launching a "hybrid music" project series initiated not least because of the ongoing pandemic, which stimulates new compositions and performances per se as hybrid formats. The programs are thus not only developed for a live concert, but also emerge, for example, as an interactive website or radio art.


"Time Slice Transmitter" is a 35-part composition for six-string electronic violin. All are invited to arrange their own versions of this work online by interactively modifying various sound and image shapes - from short looped fragments to polyphonic passages.

In contrast to conventional time-based formats, such as film, book, or record, a software-based interface is neither static nor linearly fixed. The virtual environment enables structures whose semantics can be generated or modified directly by the user on the basis of computer programs. Reading, speaking, writing, listening coincide in a single performative act. "Time Slice Transmitter" makes targeted use of precisely these medial properties: individual tracks can be played and stopped on the website at the click of a mouse. Simultaneous playback of the tracks allows for any number of sound variations, so that each user interacts to create an individual audio collage. 

This variable superimposition of individual components also determines the visual implementation: each audio track is assigned the video recording of the instrumentalist, of which only a narrow horizontal section can be seen in each case, which serves as an interaction surface, among other things. The video strips arranged one below the other on the screen thus result in a fluid mosaic of the depicted body, whose fragmented physicality represents, as it were, the translation of an auditory as well as digital simultaneity into the visual. 

As an instrument in a live performance, the web version is spun on by two performers, counterpointed and accumulated with new material.
