"Nucleus" bei den Karlsruher Schlosslichtspielen

The Institute for Music Informatics and Musicology and the ComputerStudio of the Karlsruhe University of Music are participating with their own contribution - "Nucleus" - in this year's Karlsruhe Schlosslichtspiele, which take place from 18 August to 3 October. "Nucleus" focuses on the composition of the same name by Karlsruhe composer Wolfgang Rihm. The performance of the work by students of the Karlsruhe University of Music under the direction of Peter Tilling creates images that unfold in interaction with the music as visual music across the castle façade: Contractions, eruptions, tentative gestures, nervous twitches tug, compress, stretch, form "the event as a sculpture in time" (Wolfgang Rihm). This audiovisual shape grows out of the sounds of the musicians. At the beginning, these gradually form a body of sound from preparatory actions, which is brought into pretension to finally discharge itself in "Nucleus".

The contribution for the Schlosslichtspiele was conceived and realised by Patrick Borgeat, Michael Greß, Andres Kaufmes, Damon Lee, Rainer Lorenz, Alexander Nguyen and Christoph Seibert.
