An electronic adaption of the Ursonate (1932) from Kurt Schwitters.

Electroacoustic music, 4 channel audio, duration: 10'50''

The sound poets among the Dadaists of the early 21st Century decomposed speech into their component parts, diced them with each other and put them back together in order to create new forms of expression. In Rrumpff tillff Toooo? this process of decomposition and reconstruction of speech is taken up, continued and expanded by means of digital sound synthesis.

The material comes fro the Sonate in Urlauten by Kurt Schwitters, from: Das literarische Werk, ed. by Friedhelm Lach © 1974 DuMont Buchverlag, Cologne and Kurt and Ernst Schwitters foundation, Hannover.


The images on this page consist of extracts from the presentation of the piece and its purpose framework developed for the transformation of a given speech material. Detailed information can be found in the documentation (actually available only in german, see below).
