Katharina Klement Brandung III
Composition for stereo electronics (2011)
Brandung III is the third of a series of purely ‘acousmatic’ pieces, designed for loudspeakers. The title refers to a poem by F. G. Lorca, and follows in an associative way its strong virtual pictures in his language. „Brandung“ means surge, and the basic material is the sound of water in its different aggregate states. But it is electronically transformed in many directions and builds up a new context. The last part, Brandung IV will follow soon.
Katharina Klement was born in Graz, Austria, and is a ‘composer-performer’ in the field of notated and improvised, instrumental and electronic music. She has participated in numerous crossover projects in the areas music-text-video-performance, several works for mechanically and electronically customised piano, sound installations, and is the founder or a member of many ensembles for improvised and composed music.
