ephemeropteræ 2016/#1 – Carl Michael von Hausswolff

Marking the beginning of the 5th season of EPHEMEROPTERÆ, TBA21’s summer-series dedicated to the performative articulations of spoken word phenomena, premieres with Carl Michael von Hausswolff´s Humatic Étude #1 for piano (dedicated to Conlon Nancarrow) and an introduction by Mario García Torres.

Humatic Étude #1 for piano is a participatory performance, devised by Carl Michael von Hausswolff as a comment to the mecatech music by Conlon Nancarrow, developed specifically for Mario García Torres exhibition An Arrival Tale at TBA21—Augarten. Playing with the idea of participation, the work tests the abilities of the public to keep time with machine precision. Carl Michael von Hausswolff is a Swedish composer using recording technology as his main instrument and who has developed a complex practice of film, photography, and sound as a visual artist.
