zeichen André Ruschkowski

The choosen musical material has two components: electronic — with FM-synthesis generated — sounds and with a microphone recorded and in — a sampler modificated — “natural” noise and sounds.

Basic for the compositional work was the poem zeichen (signs) by the austrian Ernst Jandl.

The poem is not set to music in any conventional way, but determines the composition in two special ways. On the one hand the kind and order of its speech sounds are mirrored in the construction and order of the electronic sounds.

On the other, the meaning of the text was taken as the basis for an associative interpretation by musical means. In this way the associative interpretation can be understood as a counterpoint to the work at the structural level.

Thus, the final musical form is a result of close overlapping of the structural and the associative (meaning) level in the poetical texture by Ernst Jandl.
