Nachtschatten is a tape piece based on instrumental and electronic sound material. It’s part of a cycle of narrative pieces describing a fictional space or line of events. It uses remains of romantic phrases distorted and replaced by microtonal, noise-based and frequency-altering effects. The idea was on the one hand to create an orchestral acousmatic machinery in contrast to well-known tape music stylistics and on the other hand to break with the common slowly upbuilding of density patterns.
Nachtschatten was produced during a residency at the ZKM, Karlsruhe in late 2008. In 2009, the composer won a residency prize in the Bourges competition for this piece.
