servus Clubraum, STWST 1st floor
We pass away against the background of eternity. In waiting we follow the timeless. In the timelessness comes the silence. Now the ecstasy shows itself in the things … untouched, fresh ground … remember Courbet …
Three stones, from the cemetery wall adjacent to the STWST, are gold-plated. The stones float in black milk - an oxymoron that speaks to ontological paradox.
The black milk is poured into a low basin in the shape of a Pascal's triangle. Acoustically, the order is indicated with thunder, which temporally follows the Fibonacci series as reverb.
Source sound: “Thunder” sample as impact and pad sound.
Sound variation: Source sound spreads in the room (reverb plug-in), with the room response serving as the new source sound; this is in turn sent to the new room (room response of the room response of the room response).
Composition: The compositional context follows the Fibonacci series.
1: Silence between the impacts (thunder): 1 sec., 1 sec., 2 sec., 3 sec., 5 sec., …. 233 seconds.
2: Duration of the sound variations: 1 min., 1 min., 2 min., 3 min., 5 minutes.
3: Modulation by effect plug-ins (Haas effect, saturation) follows a repeating 1-1-2-3-5 rhythm.
