 Granular Synthesis

The work «Noisegate,» from 1998, leads the viewer through several rooms. Installed in the darkened, central room is an evenly-paced image with sound, alluding to neither a movement nor direction. In the adjoining rooms on either side one sees the face of the performer Micheal Krammer, who appeared in earlier versions of the work and would interact with the audience. This was abandoned in favor of a real-time interaction.
Ulf Langheinrich
