Sound Worlds: Dialogue with the composer Hans Tutschku

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 5 pm.
Goethe-Institut Montreal, 418 Sherbrooke East
Free Admission

In this presentation, the composer and installation artist Hans Tutschku provides insight into his composition. The artist, who is German, has since 2004 taught electronic music at Harvard University. Tutschku is known for basing his sound installations and compositions on acoustic impressions from his surroundings. In his compositions, recordings from different sound worlds, often from far-away places, become the material for new electro-acoustic worlds. In addition to talking about his creative approach to his acoustic surroundings, Tutschku will also present the underlying concept of his work and discuss how our environment can be shaped acoustically and through composition.
