Schattenfragmente ( shadow fragments) is a piece for solo Accordion.
it is coming from a close artistic collaboration with Bernd Kohlhofer, to whom this piece is dedicated.
The piece is the result of one year exploration. what interests me the most , was the Instrument itself. Accordion is like a whole orchestra or almost like an organ. Almost anything could be possible.
It is also a kind of breathing instrument, due to the bellows. I found it fascinating to build a kind of stereo effect, a kind of conversation/dialogue between right hand and left hand, in which the border of the sound is not clear. The listener feels that , he/she is in a cloud or shadows of sounds, which are moving all the time and surrounding the listener.
The whole piece is built on the first material. The rest is just other aspects of this particular „sound“ . This element will develop and transform in to different kinds of shapes and filters.
As if you look at a leaf of a tree with your eyes or you look at it with different kinds of lenses…
